After a long wait, the highly anticipated (by GM at least) French bakery Boulangerie Christophe will open this Saturday.
GM first reported on the possible opening of the store way back in 2015. Apparently it will have an “all day bakery and cafe downstairs. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the upstairs restaurant.” The restaurant’s website has some pictures, but no menu yet.
That building long housed one of the “cheap suit” shops that have dominated this block for decades. But it has been empty since around 2012 when construction caused the whole back half of the building to collapse. So this is a welcome change.
Stop by on Saturday and welcome them to the neighborhood!
