What downtown DC definitely needs more of, is cute outdoor seating areas. Fortunately the scaffolds that had been hiding this stretch of Connecticut Avenue have come down, revealing the super cute Paul. A French bakery known for its bread, with locations in Japan, Paul has opened three stores in DC in the last year: Penn Quarter, Downtown (Connecticut and 17th) and Georgetown.
Enjoying the last bit of nice weather at lunchtime.
I picked up a ham and swiss cheese baguette sandwich. ($7.85)
Fantastic bread, this could definitely be split in two. Reminded me of the nice baguette sandwiches we ate during our honeymoon in Norway. I stopped by another day, and their sandwich offerings do not look as fresh and nice later in the day.
