LPQ is coming to the UES!

Spotted on the Upper East Side this weekend: The formerly empty storefront at the corner of Lex and 88th, which in a previous life was a bizarre boutique-y women's clothing store:

That's plywood there...

The reveal

Le Pain Quotidien is coming! Hello, Sunday brunch, tempting pastries, and crusty breads. Now the questions is, when? "Soon," yes, but when?!

I also passed by this corner this weekend. A competition with Corrado and nearby restaurants as well.

True-- although in my personal opinion, LPQ beats Corrado hands down. Especially when it comes to a sit-down brunch...

Thanks for reading!
