Behold, the brilliant Grapefruit Agave Bûche de Noël from the bread and croissant masters at Brooklyn’s Bien Cuit bakery. We were lucky enough to get a special holiday delivery featuring this colorful beauty. It’s filled with grapefruit curd and vanilla bean nougat mousse, then draped in prickly pear-mezcal gelée and Italian meringue for a super-refreshing take on the rich chocolate Yule logs usually sold this time of year. That said, BC’s holiday menu does include a dark-chocolate hazelnut version, as well as giant stollen, cherry pastries and cinnamon cookies. The shop is open until 8 p.m. tonight and only closed on Christmas day this week. Looking ahead, they will definitely be open on New Year’s Day to sell their most popular hangover order: those perfect buttery croissants. biencuit.com
