    Well, here I am after sampling the place’s canellés. Inside gummy/bready with an odd flavor–artificial rum?–outside leathery. So, back to the drawing board?

  • KDHicks

    Tried their sandwich today after reading your post — not bad at all, with a great dijon sauce! Nice selection of French grocery items for sale – cheese, sauces etc. Thanks for the tip :)

  • KDHicks

    The Williamsburg location gets pretty good reviews — will be nice to have a new option.

  • Karl Junkersfeld

    Do they serve coffee to go with their almond croissants?

  • JDF

    There’s a stop work order currently up at the location.

    Good! Does anyone know if Clover Hill is planning to come back? Says “temporarily closed” on Google.

  • Banet

    Their chocolate croissants– at the Court Street location at least – are stellar.

  • JaneonOrange

    We must have been there around the same time. I was disappointed in the baguette (not as good as Almondine) and the croissant sandwich I got. I will try regular croissants and some groceries next. No matter, its a great addition to the North Heights…

    I shop at Key all the time. I never see people without masks. The only thing that’s changed recently is that they no longer have an aisle dedicated to a single line for the cash registers.

    But then, I don’t shop on line for groceries. I prefer to support local businesses.

    The weird problem with many of my photos is that the street scene has remained unchanged since I took the photos so they look the same now as then.

    But I do have photos that show great change. Will start posting next week.

  • WallBull

    For a moment, I was afraid you meant in the diner on Montague St.

    Thank you Jorale-mon and Rick for posting polite responses with citations to my outdated information. I didn’t know just how much more transmissible the Delta variant is. I am often wrong.

  • WallBull

    This isn’t to diminish your overall point but we should be careful about the facts of this. The viral load of Delta can be up to 1,000 higher than the original strain of COVID but that does not make it 1,000 times more transmissible. The actual results are that its transmission rate seems to be about 4x of the original, not 1000x.

  • Arch Stanton

    That would have been a bazaar twist, indeed. I clarified above.

  • HgtsShpr

    I do too! I hate shopping on line. But with two immunocompromised individuals in the house, we’ve had to cave on some preferences in order to protect everybody. I’m glad you’ve had a better experience at KF than I did, but like I said, after multiple complaints about the same 2-3 staff over and over again with nothing changing, we had to put our safety first.

    I seem to remember that you are an avid fisherman. All good fishermen have a healthy dose of humility. It comes with the territory.

    I’d happily amend my interpretation of the research on viral load (which has been published in several leading news outlets) but I’d also be interested in seeing your source for 4x the transmission rate. Obviously, that’s a much more palatable number.

    On a separate note, whoever this “PBH Network” voter is, I wonder what Covid safety protocols he or she would recommend. Please do share!

    FYI: Stop work order was fully rescinded as of yesterday

  • Banet

    Nope. They were dead.

  • Nah

    No one cares what you think about anything.

  • Nah

    Or you could just shelter in place at home while the rest of the world moves on. But then what would you have to be sanctimonious about??

  • WallBull

    Here is one article on the transmission rate of the Delta variant. It’s somewhere between 2-4x greater than the original COVID but of course that becomes devastating when you multiply that by everyone who gets infected.

  • Jorale-man

    Thanks for this, very interesting. That does sum up the current state of things very well.
