Foodie Buzz: Artisan European Bakery Opens in New York

More happy news for New York foodies: Gothamist is reporting that Eric Kayser has brought his popular Maison Kayser artisan bakery chain to Manhattan's Upper East Side. (There are already dozens of outposts throughout Europe, the Middle East and Japan.)

In addition to its assortments of breads and pastries—prepared by bakers trained in the chain's Paris headquarters—the cafe also includes a full menu of French cuisine and desserts (including the debut of the Épi East Side Baguette).

Best of all: Two more NYC locations will open in the coming year—one in November at 921 Broadway near 21st Street, and a smaller one, mostly for takeout, will open at 8 West 40th Street in 2013.

The Third Avenue location near 74th Street will be open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.
