Although this is a ways off, I want to pass it along. Those of you who might have wondered what is going on at 195 Nassau Avenue (as seen above), today I got the scoop! Cody Utzman, the man behind Brooklyn Standard and Papasitos is going to open a wine Bar there! Cafe Royalle (as its name indicates) will be serving up fare with distinctively French twist. Cody told me that he guesstimates it will be open for business in “about two months”. That may seem like a ways off, but I assure you it will be upon us soon enough!

Lastly, I suspect I speak for a number of my fellow north ‘Pointers when I write that Jubilatka has had some downright mouth-watering cakes in their front window of late. Today I finally broke down and asked about them. Here’s the deal:


  1. This powdered sugar spritzed castle is chocolate brownie/ginger bread cake.
  2. This is conventional babka with a topping of assorted fruit.
  3. These are chocolate babka.

All of the previous cost a measly $12.00. Speaking as someone who is not especially talented when it comes to making baked goods, I know where I will be buying my Christmas dessert this year!

Brownie and ginger bread. Yum!
