      don't even get me started with this. they are still waiting for con ed. i'm not sure i understand but i definitely see the oven. i am beside myself. as of yesterday, still no pizza. two weeks ago, they gave me an estimate of two weeks. the downtown store (yes, i called both stores b/c i'm a nut) told me one week. oh well...

        Me, too. It's reached the point where I'm embarrassed to walk into the store any more. I just sort of pace back and forth in front of the door trying to scope out whether or not there's any pizza on display. Really pi**ed me off when I had to pay my ConEd bill the other day. Wanted to file a protest.

          i can't walk into the store any longer either. i am always peering through the window. will they place the pizza where the desserts are? hmmmm.... maybe they'll place them on the left where the small rolls are. you'd think they'd place a sign on the windows, "PIZZA FINALLY HERE!!" my heart skipped a beat a few weeks ago when i saw the signs on the window only to learn it was announcing hot chocolate. anyway, i do the once over from the window and move on [hrrrmmmph!].

            Don't be embarrassed... I usually walk in, casually inspect the oven and buy either a slice of the cheesecake, a slice of the banana walnut bread or a walnut raisin roll. Don't need any of them really, but its an excuse to walk in.

    2. this is the same as the bakery which took over sullivan street bakery? any other recs there for savory stuff?

        Grandaisy didn't "take over" Sullivan Street, they just dissolved their personal partnership and split into two different operations--the former primarily retail and the latter primarily wholesale. Grandaisy sells Sullivan Street breads. The Puliegese loaf may be the best in the city and the Pan Co’Santi (rolls and bread with walnuts and raisins) is a memorable treat.
