A European-style café offering a wide range of fresh-baked goods is on track to open Sept. 18 in the heart of downtown New Canaan, according to its owner. Patisserie Salzburg will open at 25 Elm St., according to co-owner Par Shakiban, who launched the business 26 years ago in Rye, N.Y. and has another location in Stamford, where he lives. “I am very, very excited because a lot of people from New Canaan, they did travel to my other locations and they are giving me a very positive response,” he told NewCanaanite.com. “I think New Canaan needs a good European-style pastry and baked goods shop and we hope we are going to fill in that gap there.”
Shakiban owns Patisserie Salzburg with Albana Murati, also of Stamford.
