Parade on a pastry

Apple puff pastry, Gran Milan

Hailing from Richmond, Gran Milan has sprinkled bites of Italy onto Sacramento’s Handle District. In the same storefront where the former Eatuscany served pasta, this new bakery keeps the gelato and ups the dessert quotient with traditional Italian cakes and breakfast pastries. The apple puff ($3.95) packs ethereal layers of buttery, sweet and subtly salty pastry that flake into the air on the first bite. Moist, baked Honeycrisp slices parade down the length of the rectangular treat on a clear carpet of custard. 1801 L Street, Suite 80;
