Valentines Day Sweets for Your Sweet

Valentine's Day is just around the corner- waiting there. What are you going to do for your Valentine this year? Roses? A Hallmark card that sings? Another teddy bear? Sigh.

Tribeca Treats has customized gift baskets, allowing you to tailor your gift to your sweetie's sweet tooth. Cookies, brownies, chocolates... there are so many options! Best of all, if you order by noon on Thursday you will be guaranteed Valentine's delivery. How sweet is that?
You know your sweets are in good hands with Tribeca Treats. After all, they won the popular vote for best gingerbread house among entries from 8 other NYC bakeries in a contest at Le Parker Meridien which raised over $12,000 for City Harvest. This is their entry, "Christmas in Palm Springs".

After looking at all of those sweets, wouldn't a cookie taste good right about now?

By the Ounce Wine Bar at Bouley Bakery

By day it is a comfortable space to enjoy breakfasts and lunches purchased at Bouley Bakery and by night (6 PM- midnight to be precise) it is a wine bar! How's that for multi-tasking?

Back in November, Florence Fabricant told us about By the Ounce, a wine bar where both food and wine are priced, you guessed it, by the ounce. The wine list boasts 250 selections hand-picked by André Compeyre that are available by the ounce, half-glass, glass and full bottle.

By the Ounce at Bouley Bakery, 120 West Broadway (Duane Street),TriBeCa, open 6 p.m. to midnight, except Sundays.
