Manhattan’s second location of Bouchon Bakery opened in Rockefeller Center today as expected. It’ll do business from 7 a.m. till 7 p.m. daily, with bar seating as well as sidewalk seating along 49th Street. Sebastien Rouxel (formerly of French Laundry and Per Se) will oversee pastry chef Alessandra Altieri, while the savory side is handled by Tiffany Jones. Of course it was Big Papa Thomas Keller who went across the plaza to plug the new location on the Today show this morning. Watch him show off Bouchon Bakery’s offerings as well as the new digs in this video.
