Sullivan Street opens a pop-up bakery in the East Village
Big bread news out of the East Village this week: Jim Lahey, the chef behind Manhattan’s popular Sullivan Street Bakery, quietly opened a third outpost of the restaurant at 437 East Ninth Street, between Avenue A and First Avenue, on Friday. Like its sibling in Hell’s Kitchen, the new East Village outpost will offer a selection of house-made pastries, bread, and sandwiches. Three types of focaccia will also make an appearance on the new menu, including a sfincione slice adorned with rosemary, onion, potato, and zucchini.
The bakery is calling the new location a “pop-up” for now, but it could become permanent if all goes well, according to local blog EV Grieve. Sullivan Street Bakery is open in the East Village from Tuesday to Sunday, 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
In the more than 25 years since Lahey opened Sullivan Street Bakery, the baker has been a trailblazer in the city’s booming sourdough bread and artisan pizza scenes. He opened the first outpost of Sullivan Street Bakery in Soho in 1994, which has since relocated to Hell’s Kitchen, and followed up with a second location of the hit bakery in Chelsea in 2012. Lahey, a James Beard award-winning baker, is known in part for his popular no-knead overnight bread recipe in the New York Times, one of the publication’s most-read recipes.
