Veniero Pasticceria and Caffe was established in 1894. It is one of the oldest continuously-family-owned businesses in the East Village of Manhattan. It is currently being run by the fourth-generation owner, Robert Zerilli who told us that "We bake so many cakes and pastries that we go through about 1,000 pounds of sugar every week." We especially love their #Italian cheesecake and their #cannolis. The overhanging #vintage #neonsign was installed in the 1940s. Photo and full interview with Robert appear in our book, "New York Nights".
