After spending the last year perfecting New York-style pizza at home, Chef Wylie Dufresne is now selling his 12-inch, thin-crust pies every Tuesday through Thursday at Breads Bakery near Union Square. You can place your order ahead of time on Tock to pick up things like a delicate everything bagel pizza with a thin layer of cream cheese and mozzarella, a spicy romesco pie topped with grilled ramps, and a breakfast calzone stuffed with piping hot scrambled egg, creamy Muenster and American cheese, and scallions. Are you surprised there’s already a waitlist? We’re not.

Our fingers have been crossed for several months, hoping this Crown Heights all-day cafe and wine bar would finally announce its opening. The time has come. Daughter is hosting an opening party this Saturday, April 24th and Sunday, April 25th from 8am-8pm with a special pop-up menu from Chef Alix Ferguson, and ice cream projects Cold Moon and Bad Habit. In addition to breakfast and lunch options like an egg and cheese and a chickpea salad sandwich, you’ll be able to pick up a couple of grilled skewers, spring salads, and some bigger mains like a braised short rib with guajillo pepper and honey, and a harissa chicken sandwich.
