For the past two days, there has been no better show in town than watching unaware people walk up to the shuttered storefront of Tartine, look around confoundedly, throw up their hands and walk away, grumbling.
iPhone users can breathe easy. The star of Apple's eye will reopen soon. The bakery took off Wednesday and Thursday to do some quick interior fixes (ventilation system, office), but to all those worriers: as of Thursday afternoon, Tartine will reopen Friday morning.
The scene is not quite as surreal as seeing Zuni behind paper, but it's oddly unnatural nonetheless. But things will be back to normal soon, OK?
