Balthazar Boulangerie to Open Next Week in Covent Garden

Balthazar Boulangerie New York
The London outpost of Keith McNally's New York brasserie Balthazar has been a long time coming and while there is still no confirmed opening date for the main restaurant Balthazar Bakery or - the Boulangerie - opens next door on Wednesday (February 6). Here's what you need to know:

1. The Boulangerie will be a retail space only offering takeaway with no seating but the wholesale bakery in Waterloo will eventually have casual eat-in area (trestle tables, bench-style seating) where customers can buy bread and pastries straight from the oven.

2. In the kitchen you'll find head pastry chef RĂ©gis Beauregard (formerly of The Ritz) and head baker Jon Rolfe (Flour Station).

3. Expect to be tempted by a selection of baked breads, pastries and Viennoiseries as well as fresh and delicious salads and sandwiches and wrapped treats like luxury chocolates and cookies.
