Group Meetings and Noshing at Le Pain Quotidien

The name is French for “the daily bread.” And beneath that translation is a business that believes in community sharing wholesome food nurtures the soul. So where better to conduct a little business?


Communal tables, made from the reclaimed wood of Belgian train cars, have become their centerpiece. These tables can accommodate up to 20 people or a cozy corner for four, but any place you choose to sit, the atmosphere is one for connecting and hopefully the forging of continued or new business. There is surely something to say for ‘breaking bread’ with others.


Breakfast choices include breads, pastries, coffees and teas, with lunch time offering signature tartines and homemade soups, salads or quiches. Despite the plethora of choices, LPQ embraces that eating organic is part of a healthy lifestyle and tries to offer as many choices as possible. The menu also changes with the change of seasons reflecting new recipes and seasonal ingredients.


The Bryant Park location offers free wi-fi so business is not lost, and even a Happy Hour after 5pm that just might help close the deal.
