Film Followup: In Which Larry David Visits Veniero’s

Posted on: August 15th, 2011 at 10:10 am by

Larry David has finally landed in New York City during the current season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.  Now it’s time to scope out some of the neighborhood locations cast and crew visited during the filming frenzy last summer.  Last night in Episode 6 (“The Hero”), we witnessed multiple visits to Veniero’s, the famous Italian pastry shop at 342 East 11th Street.

However there’s a slight continuity error.  Larry follows Ricky Gervais and the love interest into a subway stop that doesn’t exist near the bakery.  Once in the station, we see that it’s really in Times Square.  Still a great episode! Preview is below:

Oh, and it’s nice to see Chris Parnell of SNL fame alongside the Curb cast.
