The New Potato


François Payard

Upper East Side Guide

Francois Payard’s recently opened FP Patisserie on the Upper East Side is utter deliciousness. Between the aesthetic, the products and the pastries that have made Payard the acclaimed chef he is, it’s a neighborhood addition we’ve been excitedly anticipating. We couldn’t help but sit down with Payard for a guide to his favorite spots on the Upper East Side, as well as a tour through his new patisserie. The opening week was busy, but the chef still had time to eat and drink his way through the neighborhood!
