The French are invading the Venetian this year. The Grand Canal Shoppes will soon see the arrival of a 1,385-square-foot Le Macaron coffee shop and over the canal bridge, construction is about to start on the first Nevada outpost of a Paris Baguette cafe.
Located on the replica St. Marks Square, between the now shuttered Postrio and a jewelry store, the menu will include sandwiches, coffee, bread, pastries, cakes and desserts with a focus on creating a true homage to the spirit of a French boulangerie.
Created by the billion dollar Korean company SPC Group, the force behind Jamba Juice, Paris Baguette was launched in 1988. To give credence to their culinary chops, they even opened a Parisian branch on a Right Bank street corner last year.
The international chain has a presence in Beijing, Ho Chi Minh City, Tokyo, New York, New Jersey and 18 locations in California. A timetable for the Korean-created French bakery to arrive in the Venice-inspired Las Vegas resort has yet been announced.
