A new French pastry shop is coming to the Metropolitan

A new French pastry shop is in the works for the Metropolitan in Midtown.

It would go in right next to the Tropical Smoothie Cafe and NewDominion Bank branch (in the building across the street from Target, the one with the Trader Joe’s). I spoke to the owner, and he said he’s not ready to say much yet, but that a coming soon sign should be up in the next few weeks.

The pastry shop appears to be the first N.C. franchise of Le Macaron French Pastries.

That’s according to building permit info. The Sarasota, Florida-based company has recently started expanding outside of its home state. They specialize, naturally, in macarons — which have a small, crisp shell filled with ganache or jam.

The company has set up a website landing page for the Charlotte location, but there’s no info there yet.

Stay tuned to the Agenda for more info.
