A couple weeks ago, I got the news that darling Camelback sandwich and pastry shop Chestnut Lane would be closing its doors on November 20.
Indeed, that's still the case, so it's not too late to get in for a last-minute lobster cobb salad.
As a little nugget of thanks to her customers, owner Polly Levine even offered up a recipe for a favorite customer dish, slow-baked oatmeal (details on the next page).
Just as nice -- or maybe more so -- is word that Levine is exploring her options to reopen Chestnut Lane in the same area, after spending time with her family over the holidays. She has a spot in mind but can't dish just yet.
We'll keep you posted.
