Pain d’Epices has closed its doors at 104 West 70th Street. The bakery replaced Soutine, which had been around for 30 years, in 2013. It is expected to be replaced by an “organic housemade gluten free bakery,” according to a sign in the window. “I like gluten and I liked Pain d’Epices, and in the way of poignant moments, when I walked up to look in the window, I could still smell freshly baked bread,” wrote Mitchell. Thanks to Jenna and Mitchell for the tips.
