Today Kelli over at Lovescool wrote about the suspiciously City Bakery-like cookies at the unmarked storefront on First Avenue–the same guys I blogged about last year. A comment posted on her entry sent me to a recent discussion at Chowhound, where the bizarre denial of any CB connection is being debated as we speak… Apparently CB owner Maury Rubin has been spotted in the vicinity, which only makes me wonder–is this some extremely unusual soft opening of an offshoot? Hardly seems likely, since the CB guys seem to know what they’re doing well enough to skip over an opening THIS soft. So what’s the explanation? Again, conspiracy theories are welcome in the comments section.
Update 1/16 here.
