Reporting two "new" places: have you been to anything new?

Larry Rand | Sep 30, 2000 07:36 PM

Just wanted to let everyone know about 2 places I tried this weekend (low-key):
1. Flour - Joanne Cheng (former pastry chef at Rialto, then moved to NY and worked with Daniel Boulud for a bit and has returned) opened this bakery-cafe five days ago. She's a gifted baker. Delicious breakfast offerings (in the forms of brioche, scones, yeasty doughed items) and pastry, coffee, and a variety of daily specials. I like the painted-on chalkboard walls. I'm fond of Joanne so I hope this place does well.
2. Emma's - pizza joint. DE-EEEEEE-LICIOUS!!! I had a pizza of goat cheese, sweet potato, baby spinach and caramelized onions that was wonderful. Prior to that, we shared a pressed sandwich of a farmhouse cheddar with apples and caramelized maple bacon. Limited menu, only 40 seats, and so good. The single dessert, however, is vile - its called 'lemon fluff' and is simply meringue with lemon zest, sugar and a dollop of raspberry sauce, blech - and kind of insulting.
Anything new for anyone to report on?
