Today: Grand Opening of Le Pain Quotidien in RTC

The Belgian bakery and restaurant Le Pain Quotidien will celebrate its opening earlier this month at Reston Town Center today through a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony.

Light refreshments will be served from 5 – 7 p.m. The formal ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 6 p.m. Complimentary garage parking is available after 5 p.m.

The cafe opened on Nov. 2 at 11909 Democracy Drive. It is open from 7 am. to 9 p.m. daily. It will offer special seasonal items throughout the year. For the fall, they plan to offer treats such as a turmeric latte, spiced apple cider, Turkey Bánh Mì, a roasted pear and spinach salad, chicken “zoodle” soup and “Speculoos Tiramisu,” which the cafe describes as “a Belgian twist on the classic Italian treat.”

According to promotional material, LPQ is a privately-held company with headquarters in New York City and more than 200 locations on five continents. Its signature loaves come from the experiment of Alain Coumont, a young chef in Brussels, who opened a small bakery where he could knead flour, salt and water in 1990. Coumount struggled to find the right bread to serve at his restaurant.

  • Why do you bother?

    Too bad the owners chose their location poorly.

  • Daily Bread

    Pickup clearance SUVs that go unsold compete with paid parking and a fresh loaf.

    I love this place!! I will be there quite often.

    A more upscale version of La Madeleine at RTC? And I have to pay for parking? That better be one heck of a croissant that they’re serving…

  • Chuck Morningwood

    Wow. Another restaurant in RTC for me to ignore.

      Yep. I wonder what kind of lease they procured for themselves. Good luck!
