Despite some setbacks, it's no secret Pascal Rigo's local French patisserie and cafe chain La Boulange is expanding big time, and today come major signs he hasn't given up on the idea of an Inner Sunset location. This rather beautiful rendering of a would be ivy-strewn 9th Avenue address dropped over the EaterWire minutes ago. The hopeful outpost would sit on the very same block it tried to enter before (and where the second Nopalito should open around the middle of this month.) Remember the neighbors have been divided about La Boulange. Some think of it as a "cookie cutter chain," while others think it would be a great addition to the neighborhood. Those supporters should visit the La Boulange website and sign a letter to the Planning Commission here. Haters, the comments section awaits with open arms. The hearing will be held on April 19th.
