While I know full well that Manhattan is a culinary mecca, I no longer live there, and thus try to keep my longing for the area’s eateries firmly in check. But hearing that baker extraordinaire Dorie Greenspan opened a pop-up bakery for six days last week just about did me in. Sure, Greenspan’s CookieBar, which she opened with her son, will probably show up somewhere else, sometime, but if you missed your opportunity the first go-round, you’re going to have to wait.
Pop-up restaurants like this stoke our desire and cater to our whimsy. Nothing lights a fire in one’s belly more than the knowledge that our favorite dish or dessert is available for a limited time only. Such is the nature of the human beast: if it’s ever-present, we lose interest. If it’s hard to get, we become rabid.
If you’re interested in trying them out, check their days and hours carefully, and don’t delay.
