The announced opening date for Levain Bakery on FDB/8th Avenue (north of 116th) was today but we just received a photo showing that next week is now the set date. This famed Upper West Side purveyor of gargantuan cookies has been planning to open up in South Harlem for the past several months and a door sign a few weeks ago announced that February 22nd was the debut date: LINK. The sign posted up today in the second photo now has everyone waiting until March 1st to see what all the fuss is about.
