In any event!
The Paris-based Maison Kayser is opening a 3,000-square-foot location on Broadway at East 13th Street, the Commercial Observer reports.
This will be the ninth location in the city when it opens in early 2016.
Here's some Maison Kayser background via the bakery's website:
Founded by Eric Kayser in Paris in 1996, Maison Kayser is an authentic artisanal French Boulangerie, meaning that bread and other baked goods are mixed and baked on-site all day long.
Recognized as one of the most talented artisan bakers of his generation, Eric Kayser has built his reputation on his passion for bread, the quality of his products and his incredible skill to combine authenticity and innovation in the world of French artisanal bakeries.
Born into a family of French bakers, dating back four generations, Eric Kayser started his baker apprenticeship at age 14. He was exposed very early on to the art of baking...
In 1996, he opened his first bakery, Rue Monge, in the heart of the Quartier Latin in Paris, France. It was an immediate success and as of today, Maison Kayser has over 100 shops in over 20 different countries!
The previous tenant on Broadway and 13th, COSI, closed back in the summer.
