Veruca Bakeshop closing to make way for Niche Taste Bar

That’s right folks….what once was a bright bubbly bakeshop during the day will now transform into a sleek new lounge featuring cocktails and a menu of small plates .  Wine tastings may be in the future as well.

As sad as I am to see Veruca Bakeshop go dark, I am excited for the new concept to take form!  Mathew Rice and Gerard Craft do amazing things together and I’m sure I’ll fall in love with Niche Taste Bar the minute I take my first bite.

Don’t fret though….Mathew will still be doing his famous wedding cakes, confections and cakes.  They will need to be pre-ordered through Niche!  I am very excited to see the new desserts that come from Mathew in the months to come!  Here’s a little scoop:  one of Mathew’s fabulous wedding cakes will be shown in a summer issue of Martha Stewart Weddings!!

Mathew will also be piloting a new bread program for the restaurant.  Now, all the breads will be made in house!  I can’t wait to get my chubby little fingers on some of that!

Look for Niche Taste Bar to debut this Spring!

  2. Hi Annie,

    I have noted from other foodie blogs that you will be visiting home next week. I know how much you like 222 and Veruca and thought you might enjoy my new bakery infatuation. Sugaree Baking Company in Dogtown is making pies every friday and saturday that are yummy. I particularly like getting BBQ at Pappys and picking myself up a little pie after…..

    Just thought you might like to add to your list of places to eat while you are home! Glad to have you back in town for a bit.

  3. Susan,

    Thanks for you recs. Pappy’s is always on the list and if we have time on our schedule…we’ll stop in and see what Sugaree has to offer. Thanks!
