Patisserie Florentine has closed on 10th Street

After two years serving their signature almond croissants and other fresh-baked pastries, Patisserie Florentine has closed at 280 E. 10th St. just west of Avenue A. (Thanks to EVG readers Dan Scheffey and Tyler for the tip.)
A sign on the door greeting customers thanks everyone for their patronage .. and invites them to their two outposts in New Jersey. Patisserie Florentine is owned by brothers Tomer (the chef) and Itay (the accountant) Zilkha.
This space was previously Cafe Silan, another nice cafe spot that wasn't able to catch on despite quality food and service.
Also at this address and two storefronts away, the former Thirstea Café tea shop — which closed in September 2016 after seven years in business — was recently converted into a real-estate office.
