Beard Papa's Is Opening in Boston's Chinatown
A chain of bakeries based in Japan that claims to have the "world's best cream puffs" is coming to Boston...again.
Eater Boston is reporting that Beard Papa's is planning to open in the city's Chinatown neighborhood, with the Harrison Avenue bakery being the sole location in the city, though not the first to come to Boston (the first, which had been located in Faneuil Hall, shut its doors more than five years ago). Once it opens, expect to see a variety of cream puffs along with other treats.
If all goes as planned, it looks like the new location of Beard Papa's will open sometime in April.
[April 10 update: An earlier Facebook post from the bakery mentions that Beard Papa's could be opening in Boston on April 15, though no updates on an exact opening date have come of late.]
[May 4 update: A new article from Eater Boston indicates that Beard Papa's soft-opens today, with its grand opening being on Friday (May 8).]
The address for this new bakery in Chinatown is: Beard Papa's, 31 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA, 02111. Its website can be found at http://www.beardpapasboston.com/
