La Tulipe Desserts
455 Lexington Ave. Mount Kisco, NY 914-242-4555
Maarten and Frances Steenman are the husband-and-wife team behind La Tulipe, a tiny patisserie known not only for its state-of-the-art kitchen, mostly organic ingredients, nuanced desserts and artful culinary technique, but also its clientele: The shop famously provided the wedding cake for Chelsea Clinton. If you seek something a bit less extravagant but still worth every penny, indulge in the Chocolate Extreme, whose dark-chocolate sponge cake, dark-chocolate mousse and dark-chocolate ganache is shaped into a dome and topped with gold leaf and surrounded by crispy-chewy chocolate macarons. -Chris SericoHours: Mon: Closed; Tu-Sat: 7:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m.; Sun: 8 a.m.-2 p.m.
