Steve and Michelle Corry have released some additional information about Portland Patisserie(facebook), the new cafe and bakery they have under construction at 46 Market Street.
The focus will be on the traditional Patisserie theme-with beautiful displays of whimsical pastries, pies, cakes, desserts, breakfast pastries, etc. Although there will be a constant rotation of sweets such as crème brulee, chocolate mousse, cookies and brownies, as well as sweet crepes with peaches and vanilla cream or Nutella and banana served hot right out of the pan, additionally, there will be some limited fresh baked breads and in the theme of a true “Grand Café,” there will be full lunch and lighter dinner fare such as an array of savory crepes, salads, and sandwiches: Think duck confit, caramelized onion, and figs wrapped in a warm crepe or imagine an avocado and shrimp salad on house baked croissant- just a sample of some of the savary fare that will be offered.
Catherine Côté-Eliot who has worked at Financier in NYC and at Standard Baking will be pastry chef. The Corry’s hope to open Portland Patisserie in May. A sample menu was supplied with the press release.
