Sucre Restaurant Review: When you picture Sucré, think dessert boutique rather than pastry shop. The interior of this chic ice creamery is appropriately done in all ice cream colors, just to get you in the mood for the sugary treats. Pastry wizard and Food Network regular Tariq Hanna was lured from Detroit by Joel Dondis (owner of La Petite Grocery, Grand Isle) to open this Garden District establishment. At breakfast, begin with flaky French-style pastries and moist scones, then re-appear later in the day for tarts and cakes in a rainbow of neon colors. Meanwhile, a constantly changing selection of gelati, with flavors ranging from lemon curd to dark chocolate, keeps everyone cool no matter the temperature. Sucré also sells its products in area grocery stores and on its retail website. If you’re seeking King’s Cake for Mardi Gras, look no further.
