New and Notable: Le Pain Quotidien

The Belgian gourmet-bakery chain has landed on Rittenhouse Row, toting along its vaguely European, rustic farmhouse interior and its signature “homemade” breads — which are actually baked in and shipped from Maryland — and pastries. There are also dainty tartines and ladies-who-lunch salads, which can be eaten at a communal table meant to encourage camaraderie. Snag a jar of their version of Nutella on your way out, so you can eat heaping spoonfuls of it in the privacy of your own home — trust us, you’ll want to.
