over the wire, or my Google Reader, that Pichet Ong's 10th street eateries, P'ONG and Batch were closing this very weekend!! What! Not the very same place where I first met Rachel and Nichelle? My little (wooden) heart can only take saying goodbye to some many things in one weekend!
true. Fortunately all hope is not lost as Pichet's creations will be available by special order until the bigger and better Batch opens in late summer. I still had to get on over there and have a goodbye cupcake or two.
Bez chose the Carrot Salted Caramel for her FIRST Batch experience. "Mmm, delicious; that's some damn cupcake!"-her official opinion. I'd say she was a fan, and will probably be visiting the new store with me.
the Spicy Apple Crisp. Decisions, decisions, I can't make them! I went with both.
ADDENDUM: Per Pichet's Facebook, Batch will be open for at least a few more days!!
Stay tuned for news of Batch's reopening, this time in Chelsea and with ice cream!! Until then, you can place a special order by calling (212) 929-0250 or visiting batchnyc.com.
