When the first Financier opened downtown on Stone Street, it was wonderful. I ate there nearly every day. Little by little, the quality has slipped and the menu has gotten worse. Now, I work near the 47th Street location, and I almost never go any more. The food just doesn't taste good. The hot sandwiches taste microwaved instead of grilled on days when they are hot. Some days, they barely feel warm. No more little containers of olives and pickles. And the pastries are not fresh like they used to be. And they have gotten smaller and more expensive. I miss the amazing celery root soup that was a staple of the menu. It is disappointing to see such a great lunch spot decline so steeply.

How long do they keep their pastries? Had an eclair, and the cream inside had gone sour. A $4 eclair that too. Will not be returning.

What took me so long? I have been working downtown for 20 years and only just found this place. The quiches, hot press sandwiches and soups are delish. When you order to stay, the waiter brings your food based on a the number given when order. It's comes on real plates, real fast. It's lovely. A tiny bit of Paris. I'll be back.

My first time here and I was pleasantly surprised how upscale it was. It was a pleasure to have the butternut squash soup (soup of the day) brought steaming hot to my table. It was delicious (and I'm not a soup person). I also had a bite of a friend's mushroom quiche (a bit salty for me) and half of a mocha eclair (a bit too sweet for me). I'm hooked on their soup though.

Those of us who have lived downtown for over 10 years waited a long time to get a pastry shop! This is the BEST downtown (and now they have 3 locations). My favorites are the chocolate and almond croissants. It's breakfast here or at Jack's. Unless you want eggs . . .

Authentic-tasting French patisseries plus sandwiches, salads and quiches. The prices aren't super cheap, but you are getting great quality for your money. Good if you want a quick lunch but also want to treat yourself at the same time. If you are meeting someone for lunch in this area and want something classier than your local deli/pizza place/kebab stand but don't have the time for a 3-course sit-down meal, this is the perfect place. Plus they also have an outdoor seating area for hot days. Close your eyes, and you might as well be in France...
