Winner of the Best Bite of PhinneyWood announced

by | Oct 6, 2023

The second annual Bite of PhinneyWood saw a sold-out crowd of over 750 people come together to enjoy the best bite that 20 local restaurants and cafes had to offer. Last year, there was an unlikely tie for Best Bite between between North Star Diner‘s Left Coast Reuben and Thaiku‘s Gaeng Krua Sapparod – with Thaiku eventually claiming the coveted trophy after a month of community voting.

There was no such drama at this year’s Bite, as Petite Pierre Bakery absolutely ran away with the top prize. Chef-owners Pierre Poulin and Joanna Chau wowed the crowd with their Caramel Apple Kouign Amann – a French pastry with croissant-like dough, laminated with butter and sugar to create a flaky treat with a caramelized outer crust. Chef Poulin added the spicy apple compote as a homage to the fall season, and further enhanced his chances by bringing the pastries down to the Bite straight out of the oven and onto guest’s plates.

Bite attendees again showed their affinity for a Reuben sandwich, with the legendary 74th Street Ale House’s delectable version coming in second place. Newcomer to the neighborhood Coffeeholic House came in a close third with their “Coffeeholic’s Dream” – coffee, condensed milk, hazelnut syrup, cheese foam and cocoa powder.
