The other day, GM reported that Serendipity 3 was still full steam ahead, even though they have suffered some rather lengthy delays. Right across the street is another proposed restaurant that has been even longer in the offing: Paul Bakery.
Way back on March 2009, GM first reported that Capital Restaurant Concepts was planning on opening a bakery in the old City Tavern Club kitchen (the space just south of Banana Republic). Two years of starts and stops later, and the restaurant is finally ready to open. Specifically, next Tuesday.
Paul Bakery is part of an international chain. It’s akin to Pain Quotidian in that it’s a European chain, but it’s actually pretty nice. Only a few branches have opened in the U.S., but GM hears that this one should be even nicer than those other ones since unlike the other this one is actually owned by the company. We’ll see if that makes a difference.
Either way, it seems like this should be a nice new breakfast option for Georgetown.
