With all that the Midtown Global Market has to offer in the way of sweets, it might seem surprising that relative newcomer Salty Tart consistently has a crowd gazing through its glass cases. That is, until you realize James Beard Award nominee Michelle Gayer is behind this bustling, buttercream-laden bakery. Customers debate whether to buy stacks of perfectly rounded macaroons or the enormous flaky croissants to take home while eating large oatmeal/chocolate chip/sour cherry cookies on the spot. Ignore those who say cupcakes have gone the way of bacon as a food trend and order the white-chocolate lemon cupcake, top-heavy with sweet shavings that are balanced by a core of lemon curd that smarts on the tongue. And be sure to bring some of Gayer's glory home with you. Her rich take-and-bake chocolate brownies can secretly be passed off as your own.
