Michaeli Bakery – the brainchild of the eponymous former executive pastry chef at Breads Bakery – was only announced this week and hype is already high. The pastry shop opens this morning at 115 Division Street.

Adir Michaeli partnered with Anat Sror of Cafe Petisco to impart the new concept. Menu is stocked with Israeli-infused baked goods, from homemade burekas and challahs (Fridays only) to croissants, rugelach, and babka.

The shoebox space on Division Street is geared toward takeout, with a tiny dine-in area of six seats, and open kitchen format.

Regular hours will be 7am to 7pm.

Michaeli grew up in Israel and cut his teeth at Tel Aviv’s famed Lehamim Bakery. He moved to New York in 2013 to lead the opening team of Breads Bakery.
