Payard Patisserie & Bistro
Payard Patisserie & Bistro information
An exquisite French bistro operated by third-generation chef and chocolatier Françoise Payard. It offers tastes as rich as the handcrafted woodwork, leather banquettes and crystal chandelier in the dining room. Relish fresh takes on bistro classics at breakfast and lunch, or indulge in the outrageous desserts-only, prix-fixe dinner of artisan cheeses, orchard fruits, nuts and sweet confections. Out front is a take-out espresso bar and patisserie specializing in sweet treats such as éclairs ($8) layered with vanilla-kirsch cream.
