In one of his final acts as mayor, Tom Menino welcomed France's PAUL bakery to its first Boston location at One Boston Place today. Per a release, Menino was presented with a "commemorative bread creation" to mark the unveiling. The Downtown Crossing, Parisian pâtisserie has 6,000 square feet, including a 2,770 square foot mezzanine and an outdoor patio, plus areas to watch the bread being made from scratch. It opens in summer 2014. Menino is quoted by the release as saying that PAUL will "enhance Downtown Crossing’s growing culinary and fresh food landscape," serving breads, pastries, and sandwiches.

The bakery replaces Four Green Fields, which closed in 2012. PAUL first ventured to these shores in 2011, with a launch in Washington, D.C. They plan seven more bakeries throughout the Boston area in the coming years.
