Heart-shaped everything — bagels, pizza, cheese and even Dutch ovens — is the Valentine’s Day signature. Now Ladurée, the Paris-based bakery, confectioner and restaurant, has created its first heart-shaped croissant, a generous, properly flaky beauty with a ruby glaze and nubbins of rose. It will be sold at the pastry counter in the bakery’s New York locations in SoHo and on the Upper East Side, $5 (and $5.50 at the restaurant). It is also part of a Valentines breakfast package for two alongside pains au chocolat, macarons with Valentine messages, and rose lattes made with beets and rose powder, $40, available for pickup through Monday. The pastries demand to be eaten fresh; advance ordering is recommended.
