“Dear PoPville,

Just heard from one of the servers that Maison Kayser is closing their two DC locations at the end of next week. I think they have a lot of fans out there so I wanted to spread the word so folks might stop by before they close their doors! they were expensive but I thought their bread/pastries were pretty top notch.” (more…)

Thanks to Wandaly for sending, “delicious!”

Maison Kayser’s website says:

“Founded by Eric Kayser in Paris in 1996, Maison Kayser is an authentic artisanal French Boulangerie, meaning that bread and other baked goods are mixed and baked on-site all day long.

Each Maison Kayser location around the world is organized in the pure tradition of the French Bakery. The most ancestral techniques are combined to produce bread, including the use of liquid leaven, and innovation with the most high performance, modern, state-of-the-art bakery equipment.”

From emails:

“Corduroy and Baby Wale are reopening this week with Dinner To Go, A Virtual Farmers Market,and Liquor Mart.

The menu for dinner to go will change frequently. This week we are offering 3 soups, Red Snapper Bisque, Chestnut Soup, Parsnip Soup and an Asparagus and Frisee Salad with an onsen egg. Main courses include Grilled Lamb Loin with a Rutabaga Gratin and Pork Cheeks Osso Bucco Style with Tarbais Beans.

The Virtual Farmers Market is a convenient way for people to get fresh local produce and support local farms without having to contend with crowds at farmers markets. Many of the farms that we buy from only sell to restaurants. They are not set up to sell to large grocery stores. Farmers had already planted many crops when the virus hit and their produce will probably be wasted if it does not go to a restaurant. This is not the cheapest produce available but it is super fresh and we are marking it up as little as possible. This week we have asparagus, strawberries, red and green leaf lettuce, garlic with green tops and smooth Kale. This list will grow and change with the season.

The Liquor Mart will offer beer, wine and liquor at great prices. (more…)
