Hudson bakery moving to Athens, will expand operation

One might think Hudson with its larger population and bustling restaurant district would be a better fit for an upscale bakery than quieter Athens just across the Hudson River.

However, the owners of Bonfiglio & Bread have announced they will close their Warren Street location on May 8 when their lease is up,  and set up an expanded business in a bigger space in Athens they hope to have open early this summer.

The five-year-old bakery supplies a number of restaurants in the Capital Region, but plans to put that portion of the business on hold until the transition is complete.

Owners Rachel Sanzone and Gabriele Gulielmetti said in a Facebook announcement, "We understand that we are no longer around the corner for many of you, but hope that you will follow us across river. We are expanding on our program, adding a provisions section, espresso, a LICK ice cream kiosk, more lunch fare, prepared foods, beer and wine and, of course, bread and pastries. There will be expanded seating."

Curiously, their announcement does not specify the location of the new Athens venue.
