PAUL Bakery

In honor of Bastille Day today, I am writing to you about an amazing French bakery that has made its way to DC.  Now when I say French bakery, I legitimately mean French bakery.  It's the real deal.  PAUL bakeries can be found all over the U.K. in France and London, and now, they are right here in the U.S., with three locations in our nation's capital!  I was excited when I heard they were bringing this fine establishment to my neighborhood of Georgetown.

You can get your typical French grab and to go items - a classic baguette, croissants, pain au chocolat, brioche, macaroons.  Of course they also have French Onion Soup, a Croque Madame, or Croque Monsieur, and quiches.  But my favorite of them all is the classic Parisian - ham and cheese on a baguette.  It's clean, simple, and outstandingly delicious.  I think I could eat one every day.

Word on the street is that PAUL is celebrating Bastille Day with a relay race, but instead of a baton, participants pass the baguette!
