A blog about Hudson, New York

George Hath Come, etc.

The temporary sign is down and the space at 438  Warren, formerly occupied by Mix, has now finally opened, a chic blend of it own with handsome pieces from numerous periods, save perhaps the Ming,  successfully arranged  by someone not named George. (She’s a lady.)  Pictured here: an eye catching arrangement of vintage 20th century wall paper.

Hardly Loafing

A Horatio Alger story in motion, the delicious bakery formerly called Loaf and soon to be renamed Bonfiglio and Bread has moved up from a display case on the right hand side of Swallow (and, briefly before that, on top of the little freezer counter at Lick between ice cream seasons),  into a newly refurbished space all of it own,  next to and on a design par with the Crimson Sparrow at 748 Warren.  Owner/baker Gabriele Gulielmetti says it will have it all: café tables, subway tiling and that de rigueur Hudson accoutrement: a new, amazingly high tech behemoth of an oven all of it own.   Gulielmetti says it will all be ready by Labor Day, but in the meanwhile it’s worth a look to see how  it’s being labored on: truly a testament to the power of carbs and youthful determination (and good bread).

Secretly Seeking

A new gallery EB Fine Arts: Curatorium has dared to locate itself where few fine art galleries have dared to go before: 60 Front Street “In the industrial section of Hudson, New York” as the cute little bound pamphlet I received quaintly put it.    –Scott Baldinger


One Response to George Hath Come, etc.

  1. Hello Scott,
    Thank you for the write up. I would like to amend the opening date. We hope for Labor day weekend but it will be more likely a week or so after. We do however invite people to come see what we are doing. You can still find our bread at the Chatham COOP, Murray’s in Tivoli and the farmers market on Saturday where you will also find Sissy’s treats,. You can also find her wonderful baked goods at the Swallow counter under her new name Union St. Pastry Works.
    Thanks Again,
    Bonfiglio & Bread Ltd.
    formerly LOAF Bakery
