Northwest Sweets Open, The Bread On Foster Burger

New, 1 comment

NORTHWEST -- Long-anticipated Northwest Sweets finally opened on Northwest 23rd under the care of confectioner Steve Gazda. Early reports include word of some killer toffees, caramels--which come in flavors like "salted" and "red wine" (!)--and a crack-like peppermint bark, all of which Gazda makes in the middle of the store; later reports include a whole bunch of nostalgia trips thanks to Northwest's selection of clove-flavored gums and cigarette-pack candies and those little things that go fizz pop. For the immobile but curious, Under the Table With Jen's got a killer candy-porn slideshow.

HOLLYWOOD -- Over the transom comes a whisper that former Pearl Bakery owner Greg Mistell's Fleur de Lis--who currently keep Bunk in poppyseed rolls--is being considered as a possible supplier to the Mondok/Ricker/Huffman clusterfuck of happiness that will be Southeast's new burger bar, Foster Burger.
