A new bakery, Petit Chou, is opening later this summer at 229 First Ave. between 13th Street and 14th Street. (Thanks to Shiv for the photo!)
The proprietor, a French-trained pastry chef, shared a quick overview of what to expect:
It’s going to be a French-inspired bakery with a specialty in choux pastry, which is the base for eclairs, cream puffs and profiteroles. We will also have lots of different desserts, croissants, danishes, macarons and coffee.
They'll also offer baking classes for residents to learn how to make macarons and choux pastry.
My goal is to bring a really high quality bakery to the neighborhood. We use quality ingredients and do everything the right way, using the latest techniques. I’m really looking forward to serving the community!
Petit Chou is hopeful for an early August debut. They have an Instagram account ready to go.
No. 229 was until June 2019 Just for Fen, which served Guizhou-style fen bowls for nearly two years.
