A French bakery and an Italian restaurant are planning to join Wegmans, Kings, The Bancroft, Tony C's and the rest of the 3rd Ave project in Burlington this year.

Paul, a French bakery chain, plans to lease a 2,627 square-foot space in the shopping area that is being built near Middlesex Turnpike, according to Banker & Tradesman

Paul has about 600 stores in 30 countries. The Burlington café will have space for 70 people in three different rooms. Paul Bakery is scheduled to open in the spring, reported Banker & Tradesman.

In addition, Abbodanza, an Italian restaurant, is also slated to open in 3rd Ave, joining sports bar Tony C's and upscale steakhouse The Bancroft. 

The Burlington Planning Board recently approved the plan for the 240-seat restaurant. Abbodanza will have 6,000 square feet of space, according to the Daily Times Chronicle. 

Todd Fremont-Smith, Senior Vice President of Development for the Nordblom Company, said about Abbodanza:

“It is a chef-driven concept… With all these restaurants (on 3rd Ave.), we are looking for authenticity and a broad spectrum of menus, which Abbodanza provides," reported the Daily Times Chronicle. 

The Bancroft and Kings are planning spring openings, Tony C’s and Abbodanza are planning summer openings and Wegmans is slated for a fall opening.
