One Girl Cookies, the Boerum Hill Brooklyn bakery and cafe will open at 1 Main Street in Dumbo. Crain’s NY reported that One Girl Cookies signed a 10 year lease for 1,434 square feet. It’s not clear from the article whether they will take space as part of the new concept restaurant by Colonie Executive Chef Brad McDonald or at the existing Bubby’s restaurant. (Can anyone confirm?)
Per the Crain’s article:
“We developed a brand identity and now want to strengthen that brand,” said Dawn Casale. She and her husband Dave founded One Girl Cookies as a wholesale and mail-order operation when they lived in Manhattan. “We already built a foundation and large production facility that could handle a second location.”
The company’s first café at 69 Dean St. in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn—which it opened five and a half years ago—is also home to its baking facilities, which will make daily deliveries to the new DUMBO location a mile away. The new outpost will serve breakfast as well as freshly-baked cakes, cupcakes and other sweets.
Owner Ms. Casale also added that One Girl “hopes to “fill a void in DUMBO.” As she and her husband walked around the neighborhood they realized there wasn’t any place to buy a custom birthday cake or cupcakes for parties and other special events, all One Girl specialties.”
Chef McDonald’s restaurant and One Girl Cookies plan to open around January 2012.
