Pix Patisserie Restaurant Review: Pix Patisserie is an eclectic, velour-wallpapered wonderland, the brainchild of its chef/owner Cheryl “Pix” Wakerhauser. First and foremost are her well-known, whimsical pastries: Carmen Miranda, a fruit tart resembling an extravagant hat; Concord, an over-the-top chocolate lover's dream; and tarte ménage à trios, which combines almond cream, chocolate ganache, and orange vanilla bean crème brûlée. Thirty-plus varieties of macarons showcase a range of colors, plus flavors from fleur de sel to caramel to coconut curry. But, before you satisfy your sweet tooth, head around the U-shaped bar for some Spanish tapas. Try the fried boquerones (fresh anchovies) or the jamón Serrano carved to order. A 250-bottle Champagne collection provides libations, supplemented by a 2,000-bottle wine cellar. There's outdoor seating when it's not raining.
