Still catching up on lunch from last week... Panera Bread arrived in NYC February of last year in Chelsea and have since expanded to 3 additional locations. It's taken us that long to finally make our way over to the Union Square spot, which is kind of pathetic considering they so kindly sent us a gift card all the way back when. The Union Square Panera is huge, it wraps all the way around back. We had a perfectly pleasant lunch, for fast food, it doesn't taste of junk food at all. Not a bad alternative if you find yourself stuck between a Subway and a McDonald's.
Panera Bread, 10 Union Square E, NY, NY 10003 (btwn 14th and 15th St)
