Hi -= there used to be a place I believe on Bedford st in the city, it was run by a couple and you could basically just ask for what you wanted and they would make it for you, immense hospitality and cordial and laid-back. There is a catholic/religious school nearby and i think a lot of the kids would go there after classes. In the front there were toys for kids. And then there where the containers with old skool candies. I can't remember the name: would someone know what i am referring to? Calvin Trillin wrote about them a few years back, they were closing and hopefully re-opening: did they manage to?
Thank you +++++
