Below street level in the Pearl Nurvrei's commercial kitchen counter is tough to find but payoffs are huge perfectly crispy and not-too-sweet almond croissants ($2.50) dense and crumbly chocolate scones ($2.50) flour- and butterless chocolate cookies ($1.25) that'll make you believe you're eating an entire stick of butter and other Euro-inspired treats. Pastries are sold straight from the cooling racks while white-coated men behind a makeshift counter dole out French press coffee by the cup ($1.50).
