Le Pain Quotidien Continues Midtown Expansion


A fifth Midtown LPQ (and second this year) has just opened up on 50th street btw. 6+7th. Rock Center is already pretty saturated with sandwich/salad/soup spots like this, but Le Pain Quotidien is far better than any of the other options and I’m guessing a lot of people in the area won’t mind paying the extra $1 or $2 for their baguettes. Be afraid Au Bon Pain, be very very afraid.

A look at their sandwich board is after the jump.


I know I normally hate places like this, but LPQ is actually really good. I’m partial to their ricotta, fig, and honey tartine (and giant chocolate chip cookie.)

    This will surely give Au Bon a run for its money. It is nice to have a place close by to pick up fresh breads and pastries for the holidays.

    While they are a bit pricier, their cafe is spacious and rustic, a nice change from Au Bon!!!!

    and who doesn’t love drinking out of those adorable “soup bowl” latte cups.

    Delicious, fresh food.
    But everything is too small.
    And too expensive.

  • Small and too expensive? That’s a deal-breaker. ;P

    Hope about putting a Panera Bread in the city/ Midtown for change. Come on!

  • small by mid western standards maybe

    My wife and I shared a curry chicken sandwich from there that was enough for 3 meals total.

  • luh pan ko tee dee EN. i almost got a job here. that ricotta tartine sounds mighty delicious but what’s the damage on that? is everything on that menu $7.50?
