CRONUTS™ ARE COMING! This Thursday December 5, the folks at our Hester Street Café (bless their hearts) will be offering a “Cronut™ and cup of Instelligentsia Coffee special.” Details here.
The Cronut: Believe the Hype
Dominique Ansel Bakery, NYC
This past May, chef Dominique Ansel debuted the Cronut—a half doughnut, half croissant. Immediately, weird shit started happening. Hoping to get one before they sold out, people lined up at 6 a.m. A Cronut black market arose on Craigslist, forcing Ansel to institute a two- Cronuts-per-customer limit. His pastry hybrid has left a wake of knockoffs and a lot of chefs muttering, “Why didn’t I think of that?” It all sounds ludicrous, until you get a bite of the airy, buttery layers injected with silky cream, all of it sheathed in a sugary, crackling shell. Then you get in line.
Our 2013 Holiday Gift Membership is here! This set of three air fresheners (street meat, coffee, and laundromat-scented) means the Bowery is only a sniff away. Each set comes with a year-long Membership to the New Museum, and makes a perfect gift for the art lover on your list.
Happy Thanksgiving! The New Museum is closed today, to reopen to the public on Friday.
On the occasion of the holiday, we are remembering Rirkrit Tiravanija’s Untitled (1271) on view as part of “NYC 1993”, which consisted of a supply of instant noodles carried into the gallery in an alumninum canoe, boiled in the accompanying pot of water, and then offered to visitors.
