La Fournette at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday--one of our favorite places to be. There is ample parking and a line hasn't formed yet. Early risers sip coffee and munch on freshly baked croissants. Award winning Chef Pierre Zimmerman closed his family's one hundred and ten year old bakery in France and moved to Chicago in 2009. He opened La Fournette in Old Town at 1547 N. Wells. A second bakery and cafe is opening next month in Lincoln Park.
We snagged a parking space right in front!
See the round loaves with the "F"?
I want to plan a whole dinner party around them!
My breakfast: house-cured salmon on multi-grain bread
with a slather of creme fraiche
a sprinkle of capers
I was then off to capture a few reflections near the corner of
Illinois and McClurg.
It was a good morning.
