With 71 Clinton Fresh Food long gone, the elder Dufresne is coming home to Clinton Street.

Dewey Dufresne (father of Wylie) hasn’t yet given up on Clinton Street. Though you may have concluded otherwise. This week there is finally some real, concrete progress at his new BYGGYZ sandwich shop.

Gone is the brown window paper. New glass panes are installed, and the interior is fully visible. Kitchen, wall mural, the works.

Despite the uptick in activity, there is still no hard opening date for BYGGYZ. One would think, given the big reveal, that it would be soon. When we last caught Dufresne rustling about 37-39 Clinton Street – several months ago – he said only that the sandwich shop would open “sooner or later.”

BYGGYZ was supposed to have opened in summer 2015, itself a bumped timetable from the prior April. Previous reporting indicated that Wylie would help train the new kitchen staff if and when the establishment got going.
