On Friday, we reported that the 87-year-old 9th Street Bakery will be closing... in the ensuing comments (53 as of now), a reader mentioned that the nearly four-month-old Ballaro Bakery is also closing on East Fifth Street...
Sure enough. Signs are up.
They close for good tomorrow here between Second Avenue and First Avenue.
And they just opened in September, as noted here. The no-nonsense bakery, which made its bread on the premises, replaced the equally short-lived Porchetta.Hog.
And Ballaro Bakery is from the same folks behind the Ballarò Caffé Prosciutteria around the corner on Second Avenue.
