Le Pain Quotidien, Upper East Side Bakery and Cafe + People vs Noah

Each fall, Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center holds court. This year Alan Dershowitz as the prosecutor was pitted against Joe Lieberman, the defense, in People vs Noah. Was Noah guilty of crimes against humanity as he did not warn the others about the flood? At least that’s what Dershowitz argued. We — the jury of about 2000 people who attended — found Noah not guilty, especially after the judge — Honorable Michael Mukasey, former Attorney General of the United States — gave us instructions how to interpret the law.

After the court session, we walked over to Madison Avenue to discuss the proceedings and grab a bite at Le Pain Quotidien, a chain with over thirty locations throughout the city. They use many organic ingredients and bake bread and pastries daily, providing the calorie count of each dish.

I ordered a cup of the organic soup of the day, a spicy tomato soup ($5.99). My friend had their smoked salmon with avocado and dill tartines, their classic open-faced sandwich on organic whole wheat sourdough bread slice ($15.99).

A good place to stop for a simple, good-tasting quick bite.
