A pastry shop devoted completely to pudding? Sounds great to me. These are American puddings, mind you — “custards” to those of you at other points in the Anglosphere. It’s located — where else — in the Village in New York City. Before you say to yourself oh, that’ll never work, I’ll say that I never thought Peanut Butter & Co. would last six months when it opened (the missus and I used to spend a lot of time in New York). But flash forward twelve or so years and it’s going stronger than ever. Puddin’ opens today, and let me tell you friends, I could sure use some for my poor throat. Clio, any chance I can place an emergency order?
