Back Bay residents with a sweet tooth have reason to celebrate: Patisserie on Newbury, which opened this fall. Nubar Hagopian of La Voile Boston Brasserie, The Creperie on Newbury, and the long-running boutique hotel, Newbury Guest House, owns the shop. The trio of businesses, now a quartet, is often referred to as “the French block.” The Patisserie is tucked behind the patio of The Creperie. The cozy and bright bakery, designed by general manager Susan Turner, offers (of course) French baguettes ($4), demi-baguettes ($2.50), chocolate croissants ($3), and other pastries. Hagopian says the buttery, sweet aromas greet him each morning as he leaves his residence at the Guest House. For something savory, you’ll find deli sandwiches ($9.50), and a wide array of cheeses, crackers, pates, and other provisions to eat in at a high-top table or take out. Patisserie on Newbury, 257 Newbury St., Back Bay, Boston, 617-670-6000, patisserieonnewbury.com.
