Le French Tart Deli To Open in Brooklyn Heights

Le French Tart Deli, a Franco-focused bakery/bodega, will open at 44 Henry St. next month, taking over the space vacated by Cardinal Mkt which opened and quickly closed during the pandemic. The deli promises to offer French imported products, fresh baked goods, fromage, and charcuterie.

This is owner Laurent Chavenet’s third French Tart in Brooklyn, the first two locations having opened in Park Slope and Carroll Gardens. According to a piece in Frenchly (a blog for Francophiles), Chavenet, the grandson of a French grocer, was the chef at Montrachet restaurant in Manhattan before opening his first French Tart on Staten Island in 2001. The Bklyner also covered the opening of the location in Park Slope, which is more boulangerie than deli.

    I’m going to gain 20 pounds. This is THE best french bakery I’ve been to, outside of France. A huge boon to the neighborhood.

    Wonderful news, especially since l’Appartement 4F, a new patisserie, will also be opening this fall on Montague Street in the old Connecticut Muffin space!

    Looks great! Hope they will be offering the same menu as the Park Slope location. Those crepes look very tasty.

    Just went to the Court Street location over the weekend and it was so so good. The place was jam packed with treasures. Very excited about this.

    Sounds like a great place. How can i apply for a barista position. I have 3 years experience and live across the street.

    It’s been years since I’ve had a good napoleon or eclair. Brooklyn used to have real bakeries — Dubin’s, Sutter’s, and yes, even Ebinger’s. But of course those were in old Flatbush and had disappeared by the late 1960s, maybe the early 1970s. Looking forward to having one again.
