Fruit tarts have gotten a mini-makeover at one West Hollywood pastry shop. New Früute serves “not-so-traditional” miniature tarts, which have an “airy” texture and clever and some unusual flavors. Eighteen varieties are hand-made daily. Traditional options include the Three Berries: Madagascar vanilla custard and vanilla crust finished with fresh berries. More creative varieties include the Yuzu, with Japanese citrus cream cheese custard, vanilla crust, fresh golden raspberry and a white chocolate fan, and the Budino, made with butterscotch pudding, chocolate crust and a caramel-filled macaron. Something so unique, a great reason to come for an LA tour. The truly adventurous Curious menu includes the Wasabi, with Japanese horseradish, blood orange, pistachio crust and mint leaf tempura, and the Black Pepper, with pepper-infused chocolate, forest berry center, frangipane, chocolate crust, blueberries and a candied black-pepper crisp.
