Pâtisserie François Payard has just returned to the Upper East Side. Payard is now located on 74th Street. So for those in the area – perhaps staying at Shimmie Horn’s Hotel Chandler – it is worth checking out this stunning space with a scrumptious line of chocolate bonbons; sweet and salty macaroons (in flavors like Squid Ink with Cream Cheese and Olive Tapenade), and attractive petits gâteaux. As well, customers will be able to choose from the large savory menu. According to Payard, “we worked on the line for a long time, since a year ago. And I designed the shop myself. It’s all about elegance and beauty. A pastry chef is more than a chef, we’re very artistic people.” Sounds heavenly.
