And now for some news from the non-press-release-sending-out part of the food world, which is to say, this apparently happened about three months ago, but we're just now hearing about it (h/t Michael Morowitz). D'Amato's Bakery, the original old one at 1124 W. Grand, is one of our favorite old school places (we even have a photo of their bread that we took hanging on our wall, no joke). Part of what we like about it is that nothing ever changes there— heck, it's one of the last businesses still getting coal delivered in this city (as Mike Sula chronicled some years back). Yes, with a simple menu— crusty bread, cookies, Sicilian-style sheet pizza— it's a place where nothing ever changes... WHAT? Actually, quite a bit has changed this year without too much effect on the overall feel of the place. Besides a paint job and some vintage photos on the wall, it now has a chef in the basement making various kinds of prepared foods to go, ranging from lasagna and fettucine bolognese to caprese salad and arancini. The sheet pizzas have also expanded in various (veggie) directions. In this case at least, change is good and hasn't compromised what we've always liked about the place.
