…that our last morning in Washington DC coincided with the grand opening of the Parisian patisserie, PAUL in the Penn Quarter. We stayed at Hotel Monaco and the patisserie was literally around the corner…surely that must be a sign.
PAUL has been around since 1889 and even with 453 shops in 24 countries, it is still a family-owned business. How impressive is that? The majority of their locations are in France (326 locations), and the rest are spread across the world. They have 4 locations in Florida now. This is their first DC location (with plans to open a second in Georgetown soon). But I’m mainly concerned with when they’ll come to NYC…
Heaven? Oh yes. Look at that tart shell! Even Pierre was drooling. I think he was a little homesick for Paris, heheh. And that doesn’t happen often.
