Rum Runner Buns? Pastries taking notes from cocktails

It’s not unusual to see a bar borrowing techniques, ingredients and recipes from the kitchen to be applied onto craft cocktails, but now the swarming knowledge gathered behind the bar is spilling back into the kitchen. Enter Jane’s Sweet Buns, a pastry shop located in the East Village where owner Ravi DeRossi (Death and Co, Mayahuel, Cienfuego) and bartender extraordinaire Jane Danger (CBGB, Death and Co, Cienfuegos) are offering pastries inspired by classic cocktails like the Old Fashioned buns (peacans, bourbon, sugar, vanilla, angostura bitters). Using her moms baking recipes and her vast knowledge in cocktails and spirits, Jane Danger’s pastry creations make sense without ever reaching “gimmick territory”. Turns out now that you can have your cake and drink it too.  Click here to see menu
