Julien Boulangerie to Open Full-Service Bistro at New Upper East Side Bakery

After taking the Upper East Side by storm, opening three bakeries across the neighborhood in less than a year’s time, French pastry chef Julien Khalaf is expanding his footprint here once again. Julien Boulangerie is set to open a new restaurant with a full menu and featuring plenty of seating later this month. The best part is that it’ll be really easy to find.

That’s because the new 40-seat bistro– 20 inside, 20 outside– will actually start serving lunch and weekend brunch inside Chef Julien’s newest boulangerie— the French word for bakery— which opened in mid-July and is located at 1247 Third Avenue, between East 71st and 72nd Streets.
