François Payard returns to downtown Manhattan with an eponymous bakery-café that's a partnership with A Voce owner Marlon Abela. The former My Befana space received a complete overhaul, with large, windowed kitchens to entertain takeout visitors, as well as the folks occupying the twenty-seat casual-dining room. The famous macarons are, of course, available — though Houston Street lunch eaters will no doubt be pleased to note that the menu at François Payard Bakery also extends to the savory, including sandwiches made on fresh-baked bread.
