I was walking down 17th street just a few minutes ago and the front door was wide open, enabling a sneak peek at the progress.
Display cases seem to be in place, along with a couple of wood furniture display pieces (for dry goods). I only peeked for 5 seconds but my impression is it looks "two weeks" away from finished.
Of course, it's been quite a long time, so they may not actually open very soon, but I would hope that they wouldn't want to miss the holiday season.
I'm still hoping for a Yann/Miel pastry shoot-out this calendar year...
