WELCOME TO MY BOOKSHOP
It has been my great pleasure to serve up a delicious selection of cookbooks to customers near and far for the past 15 years.
After 15 years on West Tenth Street, my bookshop needs a new home. My landlord refused to renew my lease, but there are already some promising developments in my search for a new spot. I’ll be open through Christmas, at least, and then by appointment only through January while I pack and move. Rest assured that the new place will be as cozy and welcoming as the old shop. And maybe a little bigger, so I can fit in more good stuff! Please watch this space for updates. Feel free to contact me by email or phone. I thank you for your friendship, patronage, loyalty, and love over the past 15 years. Here’s to another 15, at least! – Bonnie
The ideal souvenir of a visit to New York: Tom Bernardin’s Ellis Island Cookbook. I also carry the wonderful 1961 Greenwich Village map that Tom has had reprinted. Read about it here.
The Italian cookbooks fill three shelves and, in times of true abbondanza, overflow onto the table and even the floor. The first Italian cookbook published in English in the United States, Simple Italian Cookery by Antonia Isola (a pseudonym), appeared in 1912.
