Lower East Side Shop That Only Sold Eclairs Appears to Have Lasted Less Than Two Weeks

Is this some kind of record?

Official Site

Les Jardins de la Duchesse, an eclair shop that offered 10 eclairs, including one wrapped in bacon and stuffed with goat cheese, seems to have opened and closed in record time. By Bowery Boogie's count, the shop was open for just 13 days. A post on Facebook says the shop is closed for renovations, but the gate has been down for three weeks now, and there's apparently a realtor's sign up now, so things don't look good. Let this be a reminder: It's tough out there, especially when you only serve one thing.
