The Return of an Atlantic Avenue Classic


Some good news to report on Atlantic Avenue: A tipster sent word that former neighborhood fixture Near East Pita Bakery, which closed many years ago, will be making a comeback. The eatery will operate in its original basement space at 183 Atlantic and be run by the son of the owner of Oriental Pastries across the street. We stopped by and got a tour of the under-construction space. The sit-down spot will feature Middle Eastern fare, including pita cooked in the impressive brick oven, which you can see after the jump. The opening date has not yet been determined, as more money needs to be secured to finish up construction. Regardless, we’re looking forward to its reemergence on Atlantic. GMAP
