Another business that was severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy has sprung back to life. This morning, Hervé Poussot reopened his Dumbo bakery Almondine. Things aren't completely back to normal — Pousout describes this as a "soft opening" — but Almondine is now serving a limited selection of fresh baked goods from the storefront on Water Street. After Hurricane Sandy destroyed the Dumbo space, Poussot also closed the Park Slope branch of his bakery for good. Hervé rebuilt the Dumbo restaurant with $25,000 her raised on GoFundMe, and $10,000 from a pop-up in December.
