Hot Philly Italian restaurant and cafe brings its pastries to NYC today
East Williamsburg’s sparkling new cafe Win Son Bakery is hosting the chefs behind popular Philly Italian restaurant and bakery Fiore on Tuesday. Chefs Ed Crochet and Justine MacNeil — who have gained a spot on the Eater Philly 38 for their Italian fare — will be cooking up four options for their one-day pop-up at Win Son Bakery.
A breakfast sandwich will come with fennel and parmesan sausage, a fried egg, and herb aioli, while a piadina sandwich comes with chorizo, kabocha squash, and apple butter. Sweets include a sfogliatella stuffed with sweetened semolina and ricotta, plus banana-glazed bomboloni stuffed with coconut cream.
The duo worked in New York before opening Fiore in Philly last year. Crochet used to work at Craft, where Win Son’s chef Trigg Brown also worked, and MacNeil used to be pastry chef at Del Posto.
