As classmates in culinary school, at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City, these baking geniuses earned the nickname “Three Tarts.” The moniker stuck even after graduation, and when Marla D’Urso decided to open her Chelsea bakery + boutique in 2006, she knew there were no better pastry chefs to call upon than Sandra Palmer and Kiyomi Toda-Burke.
Three Tarts is a unique bakery/boutique in what’s affectionately (or maybe I should say confectionately) known as bakery row, in the heart of Chelsea Manhattan (another location just opened uptown at Plaza Food Hall). Acting as both a storefront for goodies and baked goods, the in house treats are a reflection on creativity, season, and personality. These hand crafted goodies include petite fours, parfaits, truffles and shortbread cookies to name a few.
