Star Pastry Chef Shoots the Moon with ‘Supermoon Bakehouse’ Opening Tomorrow on Rivington Street

Posted on: October 6th, 2017 at 5:03 am by

The Supermoon Bakehouse officially launches on Rivington Street tomorrow. Paper again covers the windows of the storefront, obstructing the stacks of iridescent, Instagram friendly boxes.

The pastry chef behind the counter is Ry Stephen, the co-founder of Mr. Holmes Bakehouse in San Francisco. His business partner in the venture is head designer Aron Tzimas. Apparently, the bakehouse takes its name from the supermoon that appeared shortly after Stephen relocated to the city (not to mention the shape of crosissants).

Much like Mr. Holmes itself, the menu features croissants and doughnuts of various shapes and flavors on the menu, pasted in full below (it’s not easy to read). Of particular note is their signature “cruffin” pastry which is essentially a croissant baked like a muffin.

Supermoon opens early tomorrow morning at 8am.

The Schapiro’s bar-restaurant – named for the iconic winery of same that once occupied the city block – previously operated here, but closed for good in August 2016.

Here’s a rare instance of bookworms making earworms. NYPL SINGS is the latest album to come out of the New York Public Library (yes, you read that correctly).
