Tucked away between Le Mistral French Restaurant and Rouge Wine Bar, Foody's Gourmet is the type of French boulangerie and pâtisserie you might find in Paris. When you walk in, you are assailed by the warmth and aromas of French bread baked fresh that morning. Baskets of tall, thin baguettes line the counter. Shelves of hard to find artisanal breads such as the pain couronne (a ring-shaped bread), pain marguerite (a flower-shaped bread with individual boules you can rip apart), and pain d'épi (bread shaped like a wheat stalk) are simply beautiful. The selection of brioche and perfectly formed croissants are decidedly divine. Add a mouthwatering selection of pastries — everything from simple éclairs to colorful fresh fruit tarts and rainbow-hued French macarons — and you're in undeniable Foody heaven.
