4:00pm chocolate financier

11-11 chocolate financier
The new Nolita Mart, not only dispenses Stumptown Coffee, it offers pastries from Colson Patisserie.  The guy at the counter seemed apologetic about the Financier 6-pack costing $5, which is sweet.  But honestly, while it's not exactly cheap, compared with the cost of other pastries in this neighborhood, I'd consider it on the "good deal" end of the spectrum for a "patisserie".  Regardless, these chocolate financiers were delicious.  The pistachio ones were a tad too sweet; it was little too pistachio marzipan-y.  Probably better with an espresso chaser.
Nolita Mart, 156 Mott Street, NY, NY 10013 (near Grand)
