3. Celebrate Le Pain Quotidien’s birthday
As you must be aware by now, when a restaurant celebrates its birthday, usually its you that gets the gifts. Le Pain Quotidien, or LPQ, is no different and to celebrate its 30th birthday there are a few different ways you can get involved. On October 26, dine-in guests get a free retail item from the LPQ pantry, or between October 26 to 28, receive 30 per cent off your delivery order. There’s even a new menu to tuck into.
