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.)
