RI Selects: Good-bye LICK, Hello Corinna’s Comestibles
Corinna Selby, a baker whose goods, until last week, were only available wholesale, has now opened a pastry shop on Warren Street in the space normally occupied by LICK, the popular ice-cream parlor, which is closed for the season, as usual. Before noon on a recent Friday, the baguettes had all flown out the door, but there were still croissants, mini pumpkin pies and cheesecakes (these last, left, looking more Munich, where Corinna was born-and-raised, than Brooklyn) and some crunchy seed-topped hard dinner rolls that made us wish we had gotten there in time to buy a baguette. Sebastian McCabe, who handles the shopkeeping side of things, while Corrina bakes in her Philmont kitchen, says that Corinna is committed to Hudson, so we have reason to hope that by the time Christopher Haupert and Michael Harris rehang their LICK sign in the spring, she will have settled into a more permanent home.
