Magnolia Bakery Is Officially Open; Obika, Not So Much
The new Magnolia Bakery on 49th & 6th Avenue is officially open, and take a good look at the photo above… because that is emptiest you will ever see this place. Profiled Midtown Lunchers Rachel from Cupcakes Take the Cake, and Blondie and Brownie (from Blondie and Brownie) were there, so if you’re interested in how the sweets are I’m sure you will get a good write up on their sites. I will however say this… fans of the Downtown Magnolia- don’t expect downtown prices. This is Rock Center, and inflated Midtown pricing applies.
The other long awaited Midtown opening, Obika (the Mozzarella Bar on Madison and 55th) is still not open. Photo, plus the latest news- after the jump…
Still not open, and the contractor said it will open on Monday… “hopefully.” I tried to get a menu or find out prices, but was denied. Oh well.
