‘Bread’ is Moving to the Nolitan Hotel After 15 Years Headquartered on Spring Street

The familiar red canopy is deposed from 20 Spring Street, the empty restaurant now just fodder for another real estate agent.

Fifteen years since debut, Bread is amidst transition. The Spring Street standby ceased service at the end of February, but is not out of the game. Ownership is moving operations 400 feet around the corner to that unsightly eyesore that is the Nolitan Hotel. Yep, 30 Kenmare is the new home for the Italian joint, and a much larger one at that. It’ll boast 70 seats in the dining room, plus 40 additional for the seasonal sidewalk cafe.

That means the sparsely-populated Cantine Parisienne is officially kaput after a rocky few years in business. The brown butcher paper is already holding court in the windows.

Bread announced the news on its Facebook platform:

We are very excited to announce we’ll be moving to our new location around the corner, just 400 feet away. We greatly appreciate your loyal support the past 15 years, and we’re looking forward to offer you our friendly service and food for many, many more years to come! Our new corner spot, located on 40 Kenmare St. between Mott and Elizabeth, will have 70 seats indoor, and a beautiful 40 seats outdoor café.

The new location of Bread should open by April 15. In time for taxes. Its sister outpost on Hudson Street helped fulfill orders for Little Italy customers during the interim.
