Eco Treats at NYC’s New Museum
© Photo Courtesy New MuseumMaury Rubin, the baker-owner of Manhattan’s irresistible City Bakery, has expanded his eco-visionary Birdbath Bakery Café to the lobby of the New Museum on the Bowery. Seasonal, local salads and sandwiches like turkey-meatball sliders and Rubin’s cult pretzel croissants will be delivered to the New Museum by bicycle-driven cargo rickshaw. Rubin has also created a New Museum Cookie, a chocolate-chip cookie with quinoa and mango, exclusively for the museum outpost. Customers who arrive by bike or skateboard get a 25-percent discount. The funky space with communal tables was designed by Brooklyn-based Uhuru studio, an eco-avant-garde furniture collective.
