I’m still in the process of preparing the shop for re-opening. When I do, I’ll likely follow my former opening hours of 1–7 pm, six days a week (with the closed day varying from week to week). Please call ahead to check for weekly variations in my hours; the schedule will be here on my website, on my voicemail, and posted in front of the shop. I’d also be happy to make an appointment to open the shop at a time that’s convenient for you. Please ask about Gift Certificates and Registry.
Please ask about:
Worldwide shipping, gift certificates, registries, and free gift wrapping always available!
Mastercard, VISA, AMEX, Discover (both credit and debit), personal checks, and traveler’s checks accepted. Oh yes, cash, too.
AND . . . I’M IN!
It has been my great pleasure to serve up a delicious selection of cookbooks to customers near and far for the past 15 years.
On Monday, January 26, my books and I were transported through the “Blizzard of ’15” (not really, as it turned out, but it was snowing pretty hard) to 28 East Second Street, where the East Village meets the Lower East Side. What a great neighborhood. It’s all food! Um, I mean, it’s all GOOD.
I’ve started unpacking, the shelves are being installed, and I’m enjoying the view of the snow-blanketed garden through the back door. Getting used to how big the new space is (the old shop sure was small, wasn’t it?).
I’m sure it will be another two weeks before I’m ready to open for business. Until then, please note that I may lose internet service for a few days, likely from Sunday through Tuesday. My shop phone calls are being forwarded to my cell phone, and I’m not too handy with a cell phone. So I’m missing calls, too.
Please be patient, and try to avoid cookbook crises until I’m back on the job! — 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.
