The Feybesses’ eclairs ($20 for 5) could be art pieces in themselves. If you want a quick sense of the couple’s finesse, order a box of these. Airy and oblong, they look more like Christmas ornaments or extremely dramatic pendants than pastries. The eclairs are decorated with a smooth, pill-shape glaze that makes them shimmer, gem-like, in the light. Their fillings are more eclectic than the standard eclair, with mango, matcha and coconut versions in rotation. I had the mango and matcha versions, which captured their respective flavors well.

In 2013, Rigg began making guest appearances on HBO’s Game of Thrones as Olenna Tyrell, for which she won the Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2018 appearances.
