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!!
Many thanks to Helen Patrikis for including What the Doost and the team to the opening!!
