Blockbuster news today from the chef and partner behind Ahuntsic's Le St-Urbain and La Bête à Pain. Marc-André Royal and company will open a new bakery in the dynamic, condo boom quarter of Griffintown, on the corner of Young and Wellington.
"It's an old brick building. [It'll be an] open concept bakery, 2,500 square feet. Customers will be able to see all the bakers in action. We will have a 45 seat dining room. All organic breads, working with lots of sprouted grains, long fermentations, lots of éclairs..."
The as-yet-unnamed project will serve light lunches, hot-pressed sandwiches, and will be open seven days a week. "With a big emphasis on coffee," adds Royal, who hopes to unveil the new project sometime before Christmas.
