Best Use of Pecans (2011)


This baked breakfast treat from pastry chef Shuna Lydon at Bowery restaurant Peels should really just be called sugar-coated crack because it's inexpensive, addictive, and probably unhealthy for you—but so gratifying to consume that nothing else matters. A rich, yeasty, cake-like bun is slathered in dripping caramel and covered with a substantial pecan topping, ensuring sticky fingers and an instant sugar high. Along with a cup of milky coffee, there's no better way to start the day—but get them early come weekends because these babies sell out quickly. For good reason. 325 Bowery, 646-602-7015, (10003)
