The intensely popular Bien Cuit will launch a regular weekend pop-up shop at 439 Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg. The bakery’s West Village shop and café — its second location — opened in late December, and now husband and wife owners Zachary Golper and Kate Wheatcroft tell Grub Street their third retail space will set up shop near the L train on Friday afternoons, then on Saturdays and Sundays, from mid-morning until the bread sells out. The pop-up will only sell the company’s dozen varieties of bread, so while Bien Cuit’s danishes and tarts won’t be on offer, there will be many loaves, such as the bakery’s take on multi-grain called “many grain,” which up until now has only been available to its wholesale clients. Look out for that, the pugliese, and so many rounds of miche next month.
