Perhaps you've read My Dearest O's account of Emian's bakery closing. To our surprise and delight, the establishment reopened this morning as El Bolillo bakery and deli. Of course, we had to stop for coffee and baked goods after our weekly trip downtown. We were pleased to find many of the old familiar faces behind the counter & in the bakery, making and serving goodies from the same Emian's recipes. Hurray!
As an added bonus, the new owner stopped to chat with us for a few minutes, and insisted we take home some complimentary bolillo, rolls similar to the brotchen we used to nosh on in Berlin.
If you're in the neighborhood, stop by El Bolillo for a scone, a sandwich, or even a birthday cake. You won't be sorry.
