Our friends at Bedford + Bowery bring word of Patisserie Tomoko, a forthcoming retail shop and dessert bar tentatively scheduled to open October 26 at 568 Union Avenue in Brooklyn. Chef Tomoko Kato, who worked in fine-dining kitchens and helped open Cha-An, will have eight counter seats where she’ll serve a three-course menu for $13. Wine pairings and strong coffee will also be offered; check out the details here, and in the meantime, welcome back, dessert-bar concept: Sure, ChikaLicious is still going strong in the East Village, but with Room 4 Dessert, Tailor, and Kyotofu now all distant memories, it’s probably about time someone revive the form.
