Paris Baguette Now Open in Midtown East

The Korean-owned, French-inspired bakery, Paris Baguette, has opened its Midtown East location on Lexington Ave. (at 52nd St.). Actually, according to Serious Eats, it’s been open for a while now. The bakery offers a variety of breads and pastries, as well as sandwiches and beverages. Their dessert and bubble tea offerings are especially good. And as Clay noted, their savory options are not to be ignored either. Let us know if you stop by to try anything.

Paris Baguette to Open a New Location in Midtown East

Thanks to a tip from Lunch’er Jenn, we’ve recently learned that the French-inspired Korean bakery chain, Paris Baguette, is opening its newest location on 52nd Street and Lexington Avenue! The new location is taking over the space formerly occupied by Jean Louis David Salon. Though the bakery has locations in Flushing and Bayside, you may remember Blondie and Brownie‘s favorite sugar rushes and Clay’s favorite savory dishes from the K-Town location that opened in 2010. Looking forward to my personal favorite Feuilletee Chocolate and Sweet Potato Pastries for breakfast!

Paris Baguette Has Just As Many Lunchtime Savories as Sweets


When I first found out about Paris Baguette, I was a little perplexed. Like many of us, my mind first turned to Vietnamese sandwiches, but when I found out that it was really a Korean chain of French-inspired bakeries specializing in pastries and desserts, I was even more confused.

I’ll go for sweets here and there, but they are rarely a big draw for me, so I didn’t rush to check it out. After reading Blondie’s dessert report, I decided it was worth a second look. What I found when I got there was that the menu was even more diverse than I had expected. What really got my attention was the cross-cultural menu of sandwiches from lobster rolls and cheesesteaks to bulgogi and chicken parm.

See the good, the bad and the just plain different after the jump.

Paris Baguette is the Perfect Spot For an Afternoon Sugar Rush

Triple Cup Cake

During a little wandering around Midtown South recently, I happened upon Paris Baguette in K-Town (on 32nd btw. B’way+5th). Though Clay reported their opening a few weeks ago, this was my first chance to sample some of their desserts (a huge mistake if  you’re a dessert-aholic like myself!) The glass cases inside were filled with little sweet treats, many hybrids of French technique with Korean flavors. Before making my decision, I did make the wise move of surveying all of the options, including those past the whole cake case (don’t worry, I’ll DEFINITELY be back for you my pretties.) That’s where I found this little beauty; fresh whipped cream, fresh berries, alternating layers of cake and vanilla custard, a sweet heavenly treat. Though the price is a little steep at $4.50, it was thoroughly enjoyed and I’ve been contemplating what I’ll be picking up next time which will be very, very soon.

Paris Baguette Opening This Morning in K-Town

Good news for Korean pastry fans… the location of Paris Baguette on 32nd btw. 5+B’way that we told you about last month is opening today. This will be the first Manhattan location for this huge Korean chain of French-style bakeries (not to be confused with Paris Sandwich, the banh mi shop in Chinatown.)  Anyone else excited about this place? Comments on our last post go back and forth between those who think the place serves up delicious pastries to complaints that it’s over-priced.  Who’s rushing in for some fresh-baked goodness? Let us know how it is in the comments.

Korean Bakery Chain Paris Baguette Coming to K-Town

_MG_5782 - Version 2

Paris Baguette, a huge worldwide Korean bakery chain, will be opening their first Manhattan branch on 32nd btw. B’way+5th. They do serve sandwiches, but the big deal appears to be about the breads and pastries. The first branches to open in the states were in California (of course), where it got raves from yelpers, chowhounders and bloggers alike.

I had never heard of it until seeing the sign, but it turns out that there is one branch in Queens and two in New Jersey. Anyone been to any of the local branches? What are we in for?
