Maple Street Patisserie et Bistro, the new full-service breakfast and lunch expansion from the Maple Street Patisserie team is now softly open in Gert Town. A grand opening is expected around May 28. Chef Scott Maki is heading up the kitchen in the brick-walled bistro, with lunch fare including pommes frites, French Onion soup, salads and a handful of bistro sandwiches (think, ham and brie, or herb crusted roast beef with au jus) on house-baked breads in the $9-$12 range. Breakfast features a Croque Madame and other egg-fancies. Plus, there's a separate shop counter for pastries and espresso. Sounds like there are also plans to add beer/wine.
