This pastry shop in the East Village, all shiny marble and metallic surfaces, has been peddling Sicilian pastries for almost 120 years, and you won't be surprised to learn that Frank Sinatra was a regular. Veniero's was dispensing espresso made by talented barristas way before the mass market thought of it. The pastries themselves are superb, especially the miniature tarts vended by the pound, filled with deep yellow custard and dotted with fruit. --Robert Sietsema
