According to the Washington Post, Mr. Furstenberg has signed a lease for the spot, and is looking at opening in February.
[blockquote]Located near a dry cleaner and a car wash and promising plenty of foot traffic, the 3,200-square-foot shop in Van Ness will feature a working bread mixer in the front window and a steam-injected deck oven from Italy behind the counter. Local architect Peter Hapstak has been hired to design the space, which will have seats for 14, “enough,” Furstenberg says, “for people to sit down and have a cup of coffee in the morning.”[/blockquote]
Called Bread Furst, the concept has been in the planning stages for a few years, but it didn’t find a home until recently. Furstenberg also founded Marvelous Market and BreadLine.
