LINCOLN SQUARE — After hosting a pair of "doughnut and dumpling" pop-ups that saw lines of devoted foodies stretch down Western Avenue, Elizabeth Restaurant chef/owner Iliana Regan has announced plans to open Bunny, a "micro bakery."
The location is "still secret" and the timing is "TBD, but sooner than later," Regan posted to Bunny's new Facebook page.
According to Bunny's website: "We've taken some of our most fawned over works prior to and since the dawn of Elizabeth and are presenting them in an entirely new format."
A menu posted to the site shows a number items that have been given a tryout during the pop-ups: doughnuts, pierogi (which is how Regan first drew attention to her cooking), brioche toast, croissants, cookies and caramels.
Canele, soft-serve ice cream, house-made cereal loops and mushroom tea are also among the planned offerings, which will focus on making use of local and seasonal ingredients.
Regan opened the Michelin-starred Elizabeth, 4835 N. Western Ave., in 2012. The restaurant is named for her beloved older sister, who died a decade ago. Bunny, Regan explains on the bakery's website, was Elizabeth's nickname.
Those waiting for Bunny to officially debut can satisfy their craving for Regan's pastries at Elizabeth's next Doughnut and Dumpling social set for 11 a.m. - 1 p.m., Jan. 25.
