Belgian bakery and café Le Pain Quotidien, known for its simple, elegant boulangerie fare including organic breads and beverages opens its first location in Orange County this October in Fashion Island’s Pacific Court. With a communal table, a trademark piece for the brand, the 169-seat restaurant boasts an expansive 400-square-foot patio with stunning ocean views unique to its Newport Beach location.
Le Pain Quotidien — pronounced luh paN koh-ti-dyaN, meaning “the daily bread” — was founded in Brussels in 1990 by Chef Alain Coumont, whose concept of simplicity and timelessness now has an international presence with more than 150 locations worldwide. In light of its extraordinary expansion, the company makes a continuous effort to stay true to its roots and values of conviviality, authenticity, quality, and simplicity. On a local level, each eatery sources organic ingredients and implements sustainable practices.
