Coming Soon: Bisous, Ciao at 101 Stanton Street

Posted on: August 16th, 2010 at 6:36 am by

Four months later, looks like those plans to open a grilled cheese joint at 101 Stanton melted, as it were.  Back in April, we caught wind that a restaurant called Melted was to open there, and management had applied for a beer and wine license. But it was not to be.  Community Board 3 denied their request due to over-saturation [PDF] of bars in the immediate vicinity.  Now there is a new tenant lined up, with black-and-white signage already in place.  Bisous, Ciao will be opening a pastry shop here very soon.

Bisous, Ciao is a mail-order macaron bakery owned and operated by a woman named Tanya. In her own words, here is a description of the product:

Each handcrafted macaron will take you back to the cobble stone streets of Paris and evoke that romantic feeling – all from this sweet indulgence…And if you have never had this experience, please let me lead the way.

The signage and window leafing at 101 Stanton happened late last week. No word yet on opening date.  Salivating yet?
