Between a stellar local coffee roaster, the ever-expanding Frenchie empire that now includes a wine cave, and the Terroirs d’Avenir butcher, fishmonger, and épicerie, the rue du Nil is a gastronomic dream street.
It’s about to get even tastier on December 18 when Terroirs d’Avenir opens up their own boulangerie.
The bakery will be managed by a Japanese baker who has spent much of his career in France at a bakery in the 19th arrondissement, where he won an award for the best galette des rois in Paris.
Keeping in line with Terroirs d’Avenir’s philosophy of promoting exceptional local products from small purveyors, the bakery will use organic, stone-ground flours made from unusual heirloom grains and make their own sourdough starter. Buyers can expect a variety of homemade sourdough breads, viennoiseries, and, because this is France, baguettes. For those who work in the area, sandwiches are available at lunch and the offerings will change each week.
