Poilâne, the French bakery chain, is to open a restaurant in London in November. The 80-cover Cuisine de Bar by Poilâne, off Sloane Square in Chelsea, is to offer all-day dining, with the focus on classic French foods. Poilâne currently operates three bakeries in Paris and one in London, called Poilâne in Belgravia. The first Poilâne bakery opened in the Saint-Germain des Prés district of Paris in 1932.
