Welcome to The Pantry by Amy’s Bread ║ Located in NYC’s Hell’s Kitchen

Any New Yorker knows that their city is the maker of some of the finest breads and bakeries. In this fun filled city, there’s many mom & pop shops that bring out the best in their flour but one of the most exceptional is Amy Scherber’s recipes; one of the original vendors in the popular Chelsea Market has now brought her expertise and more to Hell’s Kitchen in her newest shop, The Pantry. The perfect place to be after NYFW!

Amy, along with her dedicated team, have opened a new specialty shop featuring locally sourced delights that pair deliciously with her much loved crusty breads. Right in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen and so close to my office — many thanks!!

Amy and her team have aligned with a strong cause, to help small businesses get a foothold in the big city. By carefully selecting some of the best produce found nearby to fill The Pantry, from Acme Smoked Fish in Brooklyn to Vermont Peanut Butter and more!  Each one had to be delicious, distinctive, and made by purveyors who share Amy’s commitment to producing high quality foods with locally sourced ingredients.  By collaborating with these vendors, the team at Amy’s Bread continues their mission to support unique, small food businesses in the New York area…and occasionally, beyond.

Amy explained her inspiration comes from a passion her and her husband share in helping others and at her opening of The Pantry, all she could discuss was the great new products and small businesses she’s supporting. What a kind hearted gem!
