10 Best Croissants in Los Angeles | Squid Ink | Los Angeles | Los Angeles News and Events | LA Weekly

Both the plain croissant and the pain au chocolat that pastry chef Noubar Yessayan bakes daily at Alain Giraud’s lovely French restaurant have long attained near legendary status in this town, dating back to when they were all (the chefs, the pastries) at Anisette, the much-missed brasserie in Santa Monica. Yessayan is still baking tray after tray of the glorious pastries, any one of which is well worth the drive out to the Palisades. Crisp and bronzed on the outside, utterly tender and butter-fraught on the inside, these are masterworks, with or without chocolate. 1032 Swarthmore Ave., Pacific Palisades; 310-459-7562.
