If you take a detour onto 60th St off the main street of Brooklyn’s Chinatown, you’ll come by a rather nondescript shopfront: black awning and a large window. Peep in and you’ll see a comfortable nook covered in plump black and yellow cushions and a surprisingly airy space filled with a counter and spindly tables. Go inside. Be prepared to stay for a while. The group of friends behind Palais de Sweet, tired of the same old Chinese bakeries—walk in, order, receive a container, eat, leave—came up with the idea of opening a place where customers come to be pampered, with attentive service and beautiful presentation, not to mention a unique menu found nowhere else featuring traditional asian desserts as well as slightly tweaked French favorites.
