Eater Today: Crumbs Introduces Breakfast; The Pope Just Wants to Eat Pizza in Peace

Plus, SF's Bar Tartine sets up shop in NYC.


Struggling cupcake store Crumbs Bake Shop — which was recently purchased by investor Marcus Lemonis — will soon begin serving breakfast. There's no word on what the menu will be like, but bacon cupcakes don't seem like that much of a stretch.

Popular San Francisco restaurant Bar Tartine is setting up shop in New York City for two nights in April. Per Eater NY, diners can expect dishes like smoked potatoes with ramp mayonnaise and a green chili fisherman's stew. Tickets are on sale now.

Pope Francis reveals that while he doesn't mind "being Pope" and the fame that comes with it, there are some downsides, like not being able to get a slice in peace: "The only thing I would like is to go out one day, without being recognized, and go to a pizzeria for a pizza."

McDonald's in Switzerland looks a lot different from McDonald's in the States: The chain recently reintroduced its upscale "Signature" menu in Switzerland, which features a $12 burger called The Prime, and a "classic" $10 burger featuring beef, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, and a "special mayo."

Subway has quietly been changing its sweet onion chicken teriyaki recipe "on the sly" over the last decade. This is for the best, however. As it did with its bread, the chain has been removing hard-to-pronounce additives from the chicken.

Just a good burger-themed manicure:
