During our Forbes Travel Guide editor’s experience at the Palm Court restaurant in New York, they didn’t receive any petits fours or mignardises during their meal at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Plaza Hotel. As an alternative, you may plan to splurge and enjoy your own choice of mignardises by ordering two dessert courses. Start with something decadent like the Double Chocolate Torte, perhaps paired with the last of your red wine from lunch or a little Carmes du Rieussec Sauternes. Then you can emulate the mignardises tradition with a shareable dessert made up of small sweets like the housemade French macarons. When the colorful display of apricot, lemon, pistachio, raspberry and chocolate macarons created by pastry chef Jasmina Bojic arrives at your table, you’ll know you made the right choice.
