Best of Boston

1998 Best Eclair

Vicki Lee Boyajian, Inc.

All the essential elements meld in these sweet, petite treats: an airy, flaky shell; a pastry cream redolent of vanilla with flecks of the bean; a bittersweet chocolate ganache; and a candied violet. Divine! Boyajian is also famous for spectacular wedding cakes.
