Inspired by the flavors of fall, Au Bon Pain, has created a couple new menu offerings, including the Oven-Hot BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich and a variety of sweet pumpkin bakery treats, including CroisBuns with a pumpkin filling. The menu items will be available Sept. 1 through Nov. 2, according to a company press release.
"We carefully selected these new fall menu items to offer our customers a variety of innovative ingredient combinations alongside classic flavor profiles to highlight the traditional tastes of the season," said Katherine See, Au Bon Pain’s VP of culinary innovation. "Each recipe we develop focuses on using high quality ingredients, keeping in mind proven items that our customers enjoy, and hopefully creating new favorites along the way."
