"You'll see Curly Cakes in New York soon," Todd English promised Grub Street at the Beard Awards last night. Indeed, spokesperson Lindsey Valdez confirms that English's cupcake bakery will open in the Plaza Food Hall by month's end. Curly Cakes is a joint project between English and his 16-year-old daughter Isabelle: The teen spent last summer apprenticing for her dad, attending meetings with contractors and realtors, and giving feedback on the menu. The cupcakes are basic: red velvet, lemon with pomegranate vanilla frosting, and toasted coconut. Curly Cakes was supposed to open its first store in Boston's Beacon Hill, but that's been pushed back till summer. Delivery is still available out of Olives.
