New French-Designed McDonald's Restaurant in NYC Serves Croissants and Chocolatines

Touting it as a one-of-a-kind McDonald's restaurant, McDonald's is testing a full pastry display, including croissants and chocolatines, at a French-redesigned location in New York City.

According to the Daily News, the restaurant was redesigned by French designer Patrick Norquet, who, back in 2011, was hired to update and renovate the interiors of McDonald's restaurants across France.

The upgraded location, at 809 6th Ave., sports the self-ordering kiosks and Signature Crafted burger and sandwich platform that McDonald's has steadily been rolling out.

In addition to the cookies you'll find at McDonald's across the nation (and the aforementioned croissants and chocolatines), you'll find a number of baked goods that the burger chain has previously been spotted testing in various areas, including Muffin Toppers (muffin tops in three flavors: Lemon Poppy Seed, Double Chocolate, and Blueberry), Cinnamon Cream Cheese Petite Pastries, Raspberry Petite Pastries, Cinnamon Coffee Cake, and a new version of their Baked Apple Pie (that I've previously tried and are currently available here in Southern California).

While most of the items have been offered in select markets in recent years, the croissants and chocolatines (basically a chocolate croissant) appear to have been borrowed from our neighbors up north, where both are offered as part of the Canadian McCafe menu.

All pastries at the location are priced at $1.29 or less.
