LEGO has announced a new modular building. It is the Parisian Restaurant 10243 and is scheduled to be released in January 2014.

This is the second set under their creator expert theme. The first was the Palace Cinema 10232.

Here’s a video by the designer introducing the set.

The completed building is three storeys. The first storey is the restaurant with an apartment on the second. The highest floor has a small artist’s studio.

There are a lot of interesting details and one of my favorite accessories is the cute red scooter.

The price is $10 higher than the Palace Cinema 10232 but the part count is slightly higher.

It’s a great looking set and a pity that it won’t be released in time for the end of year holiday season.
