The Zagat Review
Pastry star Dominique Ansel “goes beyond the Cronut” at this “small but mighty” West Village bakery, which “delivers a big payoff” with “exceptional” French pastries and savory noshes made to order “with Instagram in mind” ; there’s also a walk-up window for ice cream and a second floor space called U.P. for themed dessert tasting menus.

Came for the watermelon soft serve which was unique to this location only, not available at the bakery. We got there early in the day on a Saturday and there was no wait or line. There were plenty of seating available so we were able to sit, relax, enjoy and snap pics for the gram. The actual dessert is pretty good. The taste and consistency is somewhere between soft serve and an Italian ice, I would have to say. It's a refreshing unique dessert for a hot summer day and its presentation is really cute. Although $10 is really steep for a small dessert. The actual watermelon slice is huge but the soft serve part is not, I'd say. I wouldn't say it's worth $10 but this is also Dominique Ansel. These are bougie treats. I would still get it again in the summer as it's a nice treat to help cool off.

I assumed that DAK would be very good, based upon having going to the original Dominique Ansel. What I did not expect is that it would be tremendous! Its a given that the deserts were excellent, but I was very impressed by how nice my savory chicken pesto sandwich was. Cannot recommend enough.

Normally when I pass by here it’s on a Saturday and way too packed for me to go inside. I went here on a Tuesday afternoon though and it was empty! My friend and I shared a grapefruit tarte and it was amazing! The shop is very small with not much seating but if you can stop by on a weekday you’ll be fine. I would recommend!
