New French Cream Puff Store Opens on the Upper West Side

For years, the Japanese dominated the cream puff market in New York with oversize ones, but now, the French have jumped in. Rebecca Tison, a Parisian who worked for IBM and then in banking in New York, said her new shop, Barachou, is inspired by a cream puff store in Paris. The name of this Upper West Side shop is a mash-up of “bar à choux,” French for cream puff bar. Her little pastries, made on the premises by a Parisian baker ($3.20 each), have finesse, delicacy and panache, thanks to their decorative topknots and the flavored fillings like lemon-meringue, dulce de leche, pistachio, chocolate and red velvet. There are cookielike unfilled chouquettes, and also savory puffs, with toppings like cheese and tomato.

Barachou, 449 Amsterdam Avenue (82nd Street), 646-398-7788, barachou.com.
