The Americana, Long Island's glitziest mall, has a Gucci, a Bulgari, and an Hermèswhy not a Payard? That seemed to be the thinking behind signing up François Payard to open a suburban outpost of his elegant uptown pâtisserie and bistro on Manhasset's famed Miracle Mile. Outfitted with a 64-seat terrace, a mahogany bar and communal table, and café tabletops made from shredded coconut, Payard Manhasset is as sophisticated as its city sister. But Payard has come to some disturbing conclusions about his new clientele. "They really don't eat," he says of the shopaholics who cluster on the terrace to revive themselves. "And when they do, they only want chicken." But he's happy to comply with a lighter terrace menu of fruit nectars, refined curried chicken salad, and a high-class turkey-and-Swiss. In time, Payard says optimistically, the locals will surely discover chef de cuisine John Randazzo Jr.'s exquisite seasonal prix fixe menus, his peekytoe-crab salad with tomato-and-zucchini confit, and his lavender-honey-glazed Muscovy duck with baby turnips and beets. Who knows? They might even be tempted to sample the Pont Neufs and chocolate chibousts languishing in the pastry display. Even if it means going up a size or two at Gucci.
