Fine pastries, sandwiches and more for less at Noisette Pastry Kitchen
Walk into Noisette Pastry Kitchen and you know you’re somewhere special. Sun pours through the glass walls and, even in winter, the open kitchen with its bustle and chatter makes the place feel alive and exempt from cold-weather hibernation. Noisette’s menu is visual, with names of dishes written on the parchment paper lining cases of sweet and savory pastries, sandwiches and salads.
Tobi Sovak and Michael Landsberg opened Noisette in 2012, at Broadway and Charnelton, right on the edge of the downtown revitalization. “It’s good for us,” Sovak says. “Down at the crossroads, it’s a little frenetic and hectic. We’re happy to be a little bit on the fringe of downtown. But I am hoping that the revitalization is going to spread. This block between us and the Barmuda Triangle is really no man’s land right now.”
With culinary pedigrees including Marché and King Estate, Sovak and Landsberg, partners in marriage as well as business, decided to do something different with Noisette: keep the price point low and have prepared food on a frequently changing menu. Sovak says she wanted to create something that reminded her of a European train station, minus the train.
