To the snarls of a few cream-puff-craving and nostalgic uptowners, François Payard has backed out of his impending UES lease, at 1330 Third Avenue at 76th Street, a rep tells DNA Info. Apparently, the "look and feel" didn’t feel quite right, and the building seems to be well frosted with financial problems. Payard will keep shopping locations in the neighborhood. Until then, take the train. [DNA Info]
