Sad news for fans of Denise Acabo and her legendary sweets shop À l’Etoile d’Or: the shop has shut down (temporarily, we hope) following an explosion at the shop. Construction workers in the basement accidentally hit a pocket of gas and blew out the storefront of the the historic chocolaterie. Unfortunately, 5 workers were injured in the blast.
It is unclear when the shop will reopen, but there are rumors of a dinner being planned to benefit the beloved owner. We’ll keep you updated as we know more.
