Veniero's Pasticceria & Caffé, the East Village and city landmark, is celebrating its 125th anniversary tonight (Sept. 23!) here at 342 E. 11th St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
Here's what to expect, via the shop's Instagram account:
Veniero’s is throwing a party with live music by the Creswell Club jazz band, and the event will be hosted by comedian Eddie Brill from 4-9 p.m.
Free mini cannolis are available all day while supplies last.
In addition, Veniero's is offering an 18.94 percent discount on everything in the store and online.
Antonio Veniero founded the bakery at this address in 1894.
Robert Zerilli is the fourth-generation current owner and great-nephew of Antonio Veniero.
“I’m so proud and honored that our once little Italian bakery is part of the great city of New York for the last 125 years,” Zerilli told Time Out. “Veniero’s success lies with our exceptional history with the neighborhood which drives us to uphold our excellent reputation.”
