Driving home one day I noticed a sign at some just recently built buildings occupy the old site of TGI Fridays near the Howe Ave at Fulton intersection. Three restaurant are going in right next to Buca Di Peppo.
The one that jumped at me was Paris Baguette. Sounds Frenchy Oui. So after a quick online search I realized they were a chain(go figure) and had a few locations in the SF Bay Area. Since we were going to the Bay Area anyway I though we' check out the place. Find out more here.
It delivers. Wow I'm ready for the Sacramento grand opening with baited taste buds. My wife and I went to a location in Burlingame of the Penninsula below SF and this place was cool. White subway tile all over with wood accents and the employees wearing Frenchy striped shirts and Berets. It was a cool hip bistro where for the most part you can serve yourself. it had a grab and go area for savory and a few racks for cold drinks and dessert cups while you had to order drinks at the counter where you pay.
The piece de resistance was something that reminded us of a Las Vegas confectionery buffet. Two rows of so many sugary treats it was a spectacle just to behold as our mouths dropped and salivated at the same time. Of course my eyes were bigger than my diabetes system so I grabbed too much ready for the coma.
Loved this place and can't wait till it actually opens in Sac. So consider this post reconnaissance and get ready for your sugar rush when the doors open.

Having a day off work can be eventful. Honey Do list or blow it off and take a Road Trip to Apple Hill for it's #1 Product: Apples. The wife was even ok with trip but she was at work and I tried (read tried) not to gloat to hard about being in Apple Hill.
Don't know Apple Hill? How dare you. Find it just past Placerville on the left and find all the Apple goodness at so many apple orchards. Note: it is more that apples. But, how can you pass them up with so many easily accessible. Thanks Johnny Appleseed.
The wife and I used to enjoy going to Le Baux Bakery on Folsom BLVD for breakfast. They tweaked their presentation and food and eventually closed in a bit of a Restaurant Shell Game. The concept is now alive inside the La Bou on Howe Ave. It's a bit of a mix but mostly La Bou with the Le Baux food. The new owner who also owns the La Bou is trying to figure the new Le Baux concept out and is keeping it alive.
Sans drama it's the old La Bou with a bit of Les Baux which is good. Can't wait for the full concept to come to fruition. Till then the Wife & I wiill have to keep dropping by for the Croissant bread pudding waiting for the next pastry to drop in Les Baux's growth.
