National Boulangerie + Patisserie Lexington, KY
Style scouted by Tiffany of Offbeat & Inspired
We’re pretty sure that the newly opened National Boulangerie & Patisserie is as close to being in Paris as one gets in the states. Owners, Krim Boughalem and Andrea Sims, are not new to the food business, owning several other local hot spots in the Lexington area: Wine + Market (now owned by Renee and Seth Brewer, who also own the wine and tapas bar, Enoteca) and Table 310. Andrea designed this space beautifully. French music playing, overflowing pastry cases and racks of freshly baked breads create a truly genuine French experience. Be sure to take in the other rooms, such as the charming bakery kitchen and a smaller sitting room that was designed with more industrial feel. With too much to take in on just one visit and too many delectable desserts to try.
