Word is that Beard Papa -- the Japanese cream-puff chain -- is going to be expanding past its initial location in NY (Broadway, near 73rd St) and open a store in, among other cities, San Francisco. I noticed the NY location when I passed by it -- all the staff were Japanese, with uniforms that said "Beard Papa Fresh Studio" in Japanese. The dough and custard that make up these treats is so fresh and tasty, I can't wait. Krispy Kreme beware. If anyone hears about the SF opening, please post!
