Owner and executive chef Peter Rios is embarking on a new adventure and opening a new location, Alliance Patisserie, coming to Chicago’s River North neighborhood in early December 2014.

This patisserie will feature desserts with French technique with a modern twist. The patisserie plans to have entremets (mousse cakes), macarons, petite gateaux, and viennoiserie available on-site each day, alongside fresh made salad and sandwich offerings.

The new location will be at 615 N State Street.

Situated in the picturesque Wicker Park neighborhood in Chicago, Alliance Bakery features fine European pastries and desserts, custom-designed cakes to suit any occasion, and a full espresso bar.
