Oath Pizza has begun a soft open at its new location at 2169 Broadway between 76th and 77th Street. The shop serves 11-inch pizzas and you can buy a whole or a half. For its grand opening on Thursday, the shop will sell a whole pizza ($11) for the price of a half ($7), an employee told us. And they’ll have tote bags and other goodies. What’s more, there’s actual produce growing inside the restaurant, the CEO said on LinkedIn. “Thanks to a partnership with our friends Jean-Paul Kyrillos and Andrew Shearer at Farmshelf we’re able to continue pushing the boundaries of serving our guests the freshest food possible, by farming inside our restaurant.” Checkout the menu here.

Birdbath Bakery on Columbus near 73rd Street closed suddenly on Monday, with a note on the door telling people to visit the downtown location. “Someone mentioned they were open as late as yesterday. I was in there in the past 3-4 days and there was no evidence of their imminent departure,” Laura wrote. “Truly sad about this.” Others were less surprised. “There are only so many customers for $5 cookies,” wrote Paul. Birdbath’s location on 85th Street also closed this year. Thanks to Geoff, Paul and Laura for tips and photos.
