Winner Bakery will open in Prospect Park this spring
One of the best new bakeries in town is heading to Prospect Park this year. The winner, the successful Park Slope Bakery known to sell out by early afternoon most days, will be offering baked goods, sandwiches and picnics from the Prospect Park Picnic House at 40 West Drive , until December, according to a announcement of the Prospect Park Alliance. The bakery will start with a few hours a day until Memorial Day, when it will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. An opening date has yet to be announced.
The Prospect Park outpost is the latest in a series of expansions by Winner owner Daniel Eddy. Last fall, the former Rebelle chef opened an outdoor restaurant and wine bar next to his Park Slope bakery, and in January, Patch reported that Winner planned to open a second location in Crown Heights, though Eddy tells Eater the deal is still being negotiated. More recently, Winner began selling its popular pastries from Clinton Hill’s Prima Cafe.
