The Restaurant at Noglu NY is Now Open

PRESS RELEASE - 26-janv.-2016 17:25:04

  For immediate release New York, January 26, 2016 – After 3 years of success in Paris and 3 months in Manhattan, Noglu NY is opening its gluten-free restaurant on the second floor of its Upper East Side location. Like the bakery, the restaurant will be all-gluten-free with lactose-free options, locally sourced, organic, and of course, French! On the first floor, the bakery will keep offering sweet and savory take-out options. Laying the groundwork Noglu’s New York restaurant opened last week. Initially announced for the end of last year, the team wanted to ensure the first floor bakery was running seamlessly before opening the restaurant upstairs. With extensive experience in French, Italian, American & gluten-free cuisine and a few months of training at Noglu Paris, the chefs spent the last few weeks creating the menu selections to capture Noglu’s spirit in the New York kitchen. Changing with the seasons Much like in Paris, the menu will not be set in stone and requires the team to be able to adapt very fast and often. Designed to go with the seasons and the changes in stocks available at their local, organic suppliers, the menu will change regularly, once or twice a week. Depending on market finds and on the inventiveness of the head chef, this ever-changing menu will offer the restaurant’s most loyal clients a constantly renewed array of choices. Here is the menu as it stands today, but don’t expect the same one in two days! 100% Gluten-Free, and so Much More Yes, Noglu’s menu is 100% gluten-free, organic, locally-sourced and 50% dairy-free. But most importantly: it’s absolutely delicious! Gluten-free is not a goal, for Noglu’s team, it’s only a base for their creations; the kitchen sources only gluten-free ingredients. The main concerns for the team are always taste and texture: nothing will make it to the menu unless it’s thoroughly tasted, perfected and approved. A late-diagnosed Celiac, Owner Frédérique Jules knows how difficult it is to live in a world without gluten and has worked for years with her chefs to create recipes that are as close as it gets to their gluten-loaded counterparts –if not even better! About Noglu Noglu opened in Paris in 2012. Frédérique Jules hired a Japanese chef, Mitsuru Yatanase, and an American pastry chef, Jennifer Hearting-Lepoutre, to experiment, explore and perfect an all gluten-free menu. A typical Parisian bakery and restaurant, the establishment offers various types of foods, from burgers, pizza and pasta to seafood dishes, risotto and quiches. On the sweet side, the selection is vast, almost dizzying: strawberry, lemon or raspberry pies, puff cream pastries and coffee classics, canelés, cakes, muffins... After 2 years of success, Frédérique Jules opened a take-out store across the street to better serve Noglu’s growing customer base. The Upper East Side restaurant is Noglu’s third location in the world. Noglu Paris built its following not only on its allergen-free menu, but also on the quality of their dishes and on their growing following on non-gluten-free followers… simply because the food is outstanding.

24 French exhibitors at the Photonics West tradeshow in San Francisco

Nathalie Marchal - 25-janv.-2016 22:38:37

  Organised by Business France in partnership with the CNOP (National Committee for Optics and Photonics), the French Pavilion at the Photonics West tradeshow in February 2016 will gather 24 exhibitors. Among them, there will be French competitiveness clusters who are CNOP members: Bordeaux Route des Lasers and Optitec, which represent genuine exchange platforms, as well as the Bretagne International agency, which groups several businesses in its area. Located in the Moscone Center South Hall, in booths 1123 and 1223, the French Pavilion will extend over a 1600 sq feet surface area. The French optic and photonics represents about a thousand companies and 50,000 direct jobs, a turnover of €10,45b, 300 laboratories and 13,000 researchers (Source: AFOP). As for business sectors, while it is still positioned on the defence market, it is making increasing inroads into sectors such as security, aeronautics, automotive, space, health, telecommunications, instrumentation and industrial processes. 90% of French industrialists export their production. Those exports represent about 50% of the business channel’s overall turnover. Research conducted in France covers a wide range of fields: fundamental physics, astrophysics, micro and nanotechnology, light/matter interaction and materials, thereby taking part in the progress of other disciplines. All French research agencies are presently involved in ambitious projects: the large telescopes of the future, satellites to observe the workings of the universe, extreme lasers, and they are associated with the instrumentation needed in such undertakings as the ITER, VIRGO and LHC projects. Beyond the exceptional advances they are expected to trigger, those projects are also significantly stimulating industrial activity around optics photonics. Furthermore, they are playing a role in creating a strong synergy between research laboratories and industry, a synergy which is essential to a dynamic business environment and which has brought about a strong showing of French projects within the framework of European calls for tender. Innovative in the field of optics and photonics, French companies exhibiting in San Francisco will be unveiling their latest products at the tradeshow. The catalogue of exhibitors is available on request. Contact: Business France Nathalie Marchal, Electronic & Digital Project Coordinator
