Davidovich Bakery Opens in the Lobby of Blue Moon Hotel on Orchard Street

Posted on: May 15th, 2019 at 5:05 am by

The Blue Moon Hotel on Orchard Street continues to refine its public-facing lobby operation.

Three years ago, the 22-room boutique lodge installed a cafe and juice bar, offering goods from area businesses. That endeavor lasted until a couple months ago, when the operation went dark. Not anymore.

The proverbial lights are back on, and now Davidovich Bakery is at the helm. There are glass cases of bagels and other baked goods. A sandwich board out front offers up the specials.

Also, keep in mind that the twenty-one-year-old business also maintains a sizable stall inside the new Essex Street Market, just around the corner.

As before, this attempt at diversification could be perceived as a value-added proposition to sweeten the next sales pitch. Indeed, the Blue Moon had been on the market almost annually for the last decade. The latest was last July. Below is a quick tally.

July 2018: $23.5 million
December 2014: $21 million
August 2014: $19 million
August 2013: $19 million
September 2012: $16.5 million
May 2012: $19.5 million
July 2011: $29 million
September 2009: $35 million
May 2005: $20 million
