Debuting today in Spring Valley, business partners Jerome Marchand and chef Pierre Gatel's authentic tribute to their French birthplace, creating a bakery devoted to all traditions sweet and savory.
The 2,308-square-foot space at the Apache Center, close to the intersection of Spring Mountain and Fort Apache roads, will eventually sport a patio, but for now guests are encouraged to linger inside and sample fresh baked croissants, coffee by La Colombe, crepes, panini, salads and from Marchand, authentic Bretagne galettes.
Chef Gatel spent 11 years at the Wynn and Encore resorts rising to the position of executive pastry chef. His earlier career includes time spent working in New York with Francois Payard and Alain Ducasse.
Among the menu items already recommended by the pair, Croque Monsieur, chicken and Gouda quiche, crepes with apple and salted caramel and Paris–Brest.
