If you live in New York–and even if you don’t–you may have heard of the Dominique Ansel Bakery and its famous invention, the cronut.
[Full disclosure: we tasted one and it was pretty good, especially the super-creamy filling. But there is no way in hell we would ever wait in line for one like so many insane people do every morning.]
Anyway, the bakery recently won even more headlines than usual after the city Department of Health shut the site down due to the discovery of “several hundred mouse droppings.”
The story has now been resolved and the bakery reopened, but it didn’t end before a bit of back-and-forth between the bakery’s rep and a local blog as well as a a defiant thank you/apology letter from the proprietor to his fans.
