Construction at Yigit Pura’s new pastry shop and café, Tout Sweet, began this month on the third floor of Macy’s Union Square, and today Eater gets a firm opening date: August 25. Pura, as you may know, was the first-season winner of Top Chef: Just Desserts, and he’s partnering with his Taste Catering employers on the new venture. Of note, in addition to Pura’s inventive sweets and pastries, there will be a savory side to the business, including breakfast sandwiches like a decadent dairy bomb called the B3: bread, butter, and burrata.
