Early last September, I noted that an outpost of Paris Baguette was opening in the shoppes of Stuy Town on First Avenue near 16th Street.
And that was likely the last time I walked by this strip of shoppes. Which is why I had no idea that this Paris Baguette had opened earlier in the fall.
As noted, the quickly expanding South Korea-based company has more than 3,000 corporate and franchised stores across multiple countries in Asia as well as in Europe. There are a handful of locations currently in Manhattan.
Anyway, I happened to walk by the other day ... and so I went inside. I recalled DrGecko's comment about the food items:
Oh, god, I love their place on 32nd St. If I'm feeling down, just a quick look at their bizarre stuff always cheers me up.
I haven't seen the doughnut stuffed with potato salad recently, but their skewered hotdog-in-a-roll or their sweet-potato sponge cake will surely brighten up the neighborhood.
P.S. I don't necessarily recommend actually eating any of these things.
This item for sale certainly cheered me up — behold the Egg Salad Bacon Roll (#paleo)...
Anyway, the place looked to be doing pretty good business. There was a short line at the counter and I didn't feel like waiting for
