At last week's Salon des vins d'importation privée, I ran into a former employee of CDN's famous pastry shop and salon de thé. She said that: the longtime owners sold the business last summer; the new owners didn't have the same level of expertise or commitment to quality; many of the front-of-house and back-of-house staff had left; and the overall offer, especially the croissants and pastries, was far inferior to what it was in the past.

Not being a frequent eater of croissants and pastries, it'll be a while before I check the veracity of the claim. In the meantime, I'm wondering whether anyone has anything to report.
