Stuffed Artisan Cannoli Departing 176 Stanton Street

Posted on: September 19th, 2011 at 6:42 am by

Stuffed Artisan Cannoli was born amidst the Feast of San Gennaro back in 2008, a food cart baker offering “funkified” flavors of the traditional treat.  Capitalizing on that momentum, the modest Lower East Side bakery later opened a brick-and-mortar shop at 176 Stanton Street (yes, Gaga’s building).  Now three years on, almost on the anniversary of retail launch, the tasty batter has soured, so to speak.  Indeed, despite a dual-location appearance selling goodies at the festival this fall, the pastry shop is departing the neighborhood.  This news just days after scoring the coveted A grade from the Department of Health.

Dear loyal customers and friends,

We have good and sad news.  Sad news first…As of September 11, we will be closing our 176 Stanton location.

And now the good news!  You will still be able to get your cannoli on at that San Gennaro Feast in September, the Madison Square Market in October, and Union Square Market throughout the holidays.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your patronage, and look forward to seeing you in the future!

Love,
Team Stuffed

Some nearby residents who frequent the bakery hear the recent closure resulted from lack of foot traffic, and that the West Village might be the next stop for Stuffed Artisan Cannoli.
