Part of New York’s growing Food Court fascination, with savories from Chef Yvan Lemoine and a Pastry program set up by Thiago Silva, Union Fare occupies an enormous footprint between 17th and 18th Street in the Flatiron, the dining room and bar filling one half while the other is comprised of a lengthy Pastry counter, Food stalls and event space.

Described as “a new industrial restaurant and modern gastrohall” and making waves on Instagram thanks to innovative Croissants, Cookies, Brownies and “Pretzel Bombs,” the full menu further invigorated by items like Carrot Cake Waffles and a $25 Monte Cristo, it was specifically with a focus on baked goods that two friends sat down to a half-dozen items tallying just under $25, only the dry-and-flavorless Snickerdoodle completely unrecommendable, while the rest is largely a matter of taste.

Certainly not a traditional Patisserie, even places like Chanson or Bouchon that occasionally offer novel flavors not going as far as Daily Provisions’ zany options, it was with three Cookies including the aforementioned Cinnamon disappointment that the sampling got underway, the Oatmeal Raisin round a reference standard version with a soft-center and crisp ring, the Black & White like a buttery Poundcake with good Frosting, both Vanilla and Chocolate.

Choosing to dine-in, long picnic-style tables lining the front half of the event space, it was with three hefty Croissants unloaded and pictures taken that each was tasted in succession, the Crème Brulee packing the laminated dough with soft Custard before torching sugar on top and the Social Media-friendly Birthday Cake putting Sprinkles in the Dough while Red Velvet uses dyed-Butter to achieve its desired effect, the former filled with soft Pink Buttercream while the Brick Red Pastry is stuffed with lightly sweetened Cream Cheese Frosting.
