East of McCarren Park, the pace on Driggs Avenue has always slowed considerably, except outside a few standbys like Warsaw, Variety and Enid’s. But in the past month, new window lights have begun to illuminate my nightly stroll home, the signs of new businesses that have set up shop on the sometimes desolate street. Sunday night my photographer and I set out to check out three of the latest (and least celiac-friendly): Crema BK, Park Luncheonette and Bread For The Eater.
