Macaron Time: FP Pâtisserie Opens on the UES Today

The restaurant debuts that were delayed by Sandy are getting back on track. Today we have word that Francois Payard's new FP Pâtisserie is opening tonight after a slight delay. Payard is no stranger to the UES, Payard Pâtisserie and Bistro was a neighborhood mainstay for 12 years before it shuttered in 2009 due to a rent hike.

Well, he's back with a larger venue that is divided into three areas. There's a boutique where you can score some sweets (yes, three will be macarons), a bar with coffee, tea, beer and wine and a 32-seat tea salon that serves lunch, brunch and afternoon tea service on Saturdays (1293 Third Ave.; 212-717-5252)
