Red Gate Bakery setting up shop at 68 E. 1st St.



Renovations are underway inside 68 E. First St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue, where the proprietors of Red Gate Bakery are preparing to open later this year.

The Red Gate website notes that they sell "small-batch, high-quality, no-frills baked goods." Their menu features a variety of cookies, brownies, cakes and a midnight banana bread. You can see some of these items on the Red Gate Instagram account....


This is the first storefront for the proprietors, who have been taking online orders for a variety of events and special occasions.

No. 68 was previously home to the Tuck Shop, which closed in September 2018 after 13 years of selling Australian meat and vegetable pies on the block.

Now that Moishe's is gone, I wonder if the East Village will ever get a bakery that sells other things besides sweets - ya know, like BREAD - again?

Yay!! There's nowhere to get a good, fresh blueberry muffin in the nabe right now. (And sorry, but the only bread Moishe did well was rye. Their challah was an abomination. One may not like to patronize Whole Foods, but they DO have a great, wide selection of impeccably fresh breads.)

Say what you want, but I'm pretty ho-hum about any bakery—or eatery—that isn't vegan. Almost anybody can eat vegan food, whereas a lot of people can't eat dairy and eggs. Also, vegan bakeries are more likely than omnivore bakeries to take into consideration things like food allergies.

Are there any vegan pastry stores in the area? LifeThyme at 408 6th Ave. recently closed its pastry operation.
