“Authentic French pastries in NYC”

François Payard is a third generation French Pastry Chef born in Nice on July 16th, 1966. After honing his skills in classic pastry by his family’s side, François moved to Paris where he earned the pastry chef position in several of France’s finest kitchens: La Tour d’Argent (***Michelin), Alain Senderens at Lucas Carton (***Michelin). In these renowned restaurants he met the challenge of creating dessert menus worthy of a three star Michelin rating. He arrived in New York in 1990. His first position as Pastry Chef at Le Bernardin (****NY Times), challenged him to create a new dessert repertoire and made him popular for his beautifully presented creations, bursting with delicate flavors and taste. In 1993, François Payard joined Chef Daniel Boulud for the opening of Restaurant Daniel (****NY Times) where he delighted guests with his chocolate and seasonal fruit menus. In 1995, The James Beard Foundation named François “Pastry Chef of the Year” in recognition of his accent on flavor combined with a unique sense of pastry design. In August of 1997, François’ childhood dream of opening his own restaurant became a reality. Located on 1032 Lexington Avenue, François strived to innovate, perfect, educate and contribute his ideas and passion to the field of pastry. Considered as one of Manhattan’s finest culinary destinations for 12 years, the establishment closed its doors the first week of July 2009, due to the loss of its lease. Chef Payard is now heading towards new endeavors and is looking for a new home to welcome his loyal patrons and pastry/chocolate lovers. In 1998, he was acknowledged for this by being awarded “Pastry Chef of the Year” by the Bon Appétit Food & Entertainment Awards and again in 2001 by the International Pastry Competition Committee-Beaver Creek. In July of 2004, François was honored with the prestigious Ordre du Mérite Agricole, Medal of Honor by the French Government. And in 2005, he received Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for having one of the most outstanding wine lists in the world as well as being selected in 2006 as a member of Relais Desserts International a professional association of the 85 Best Pastry Chefs in the World.  Francois Payard Bakery has been featured on Unique Sweets.
