From a press release:

“Chef/owners Susan Limb and Patrick Musel announce the opening of Praline Bakery & Bistro at historic Glen Echo Park. The concept will be quick service/casual with items such as sandwiches, soups, quiches, salads, freshly popped popcorn and other delicious fare to eat in the café or take out. They will also offer a kid-friendly menu and full-service catering for onsite events. The café will be located next to Glen Echo Park’s historic Spanish Ballroom and will open around Glen Echo Park’s ‘Family Day’ on April 30th.

Menu highlights include Praline Bakery’s mouthwatering pastries, macarons, cakes, tarts, and cookies, as well as picnics to eat on the grounds served in a signature picnic satchel. Picnic options include: choice of sandwich, drink, and macaron or framboise; for two, choice of style of French picnic—charcuterie, cheese plate, salad, macarons, palmiers, and mini ficelles; and for three or more, choice of two kinds of sandwiches, salads, and a dessert, or French style with two charcuterie, cheese or smoked salmon plates, two salads, and desserts.

Glen Echo Park is home to 14 resident artists and arts organizations, a thriving social dance program, a restored 1921 Dentzel Carousel, two award-winning children’s theaters, a weekend drop-in art program for children, numerous art studios and galleries, a nature program, hundreds of classes in visual and performing arts, free summer concerts, festivals, and special events.”

  • French picnic baskets, love it!

    This will make a great pit-stop on weekend bike rides. They should really make sure to put up a sign next to the trail.
