Eli and Oliver Zabar Opening New Broome Street Bakery Alongside ‘Devon’
A new Zabar-backed bakery endeavor is set to open on the Lower East Side.
Oliver Zabar, who currently owns and operates Devon on Broome Street, is poised to inaugurate the as-yet-unnamed bakery beside the newcomer restaurant.
He and father Eli Zabar have been working together on the concept, and plan to launch at 254 Broome (formerly home to Tache Artisan Chocolate) sometime in mid-May. It’ll serve fresh bread and pastries baked daily in-house; breakfast options and coffee; plus soups, salads, and a rotating selection of sandwiches made on fresh baguettes.
In addition, Devon will source its bread and other baked goods from here.
The father-son duo opened Devon in November 2018, naming it after Oliver’s mother, Devon Fredericks, apparently a major creative influence in the Eli’s empire.
“I set out to create my ideal neighborhood spot,” Oliver Zabar told the New York Times of Devon back in August. “Good, accessible food; great drinks and a comfortable environment where you can feel at home.”
