This summer, look for a bakery-café from François Payard in Greenwich Village. Payard is partnering in the new, unnamed venture with A Voce owner Marlon Abela. “Inexpensive, lots of bread, sandwiches and rustic stuff,” the chef told Diner’s Journal. Payard will also use the kitchen at 116 West Houston (near Sullivan Street) to prep for other locations, including another casual café planned for 2010. [Diner’s Journal/NYT]
