French Bistro to Open in 3rd Ave. Development

By: Rich Hosford

Another restaurant has been announced to be part of the 3rd Ave. development project. 


PAUL Bakery, an internationally-known French bistro with locations in 30 countries, was recently given the go-ahead by the Planning Board to open at 62 Second Avenue. PAUL USA was at the most recent board meeting for approval of a special permit to allow it to move into the location. The board voted unanimously to approve. 


According to its web site, PAUL Bakery was founded in 1889 in the city of Croix, in Northern France. It specializes in serving French products, including breads, crepes, sandwiches, macarons, soups, cakes, pastries, coffee, wine and beer. According to the web site for 3rd Ave., "Throughout the day, PAUL will serve an array of pastries, quiches and other egg dishes, crepes, sandwiches made on fresh baguettes, fresh salads, and soup. PAUL’s breads are made fresh daily from an organic, locally sourced flour mill exclusively for PAUL, are naturally fermented and are made without additives or preservatives."


Kevin Barry, PAUL USA construction manager, told the board the Burlington location will be decorated in such a way that it will make customers feel like they are in Paris. There will be three different rooms with their own special feel and atmosphere. The restaurant will have 132 seats, including 60 outside on a terrace. 


There has not been grand opening date announced by 3rd Ave. as of yet.
