|Marvel & Michael Allen|
Allen is no novice. A second-generation pastry chef who's wowed the crowds at Water's Edge and United Nations, we now get his famous confections and baked goods with killer coffee and a nicely appointed cafe. Plus homemade gelato, and according to NY Magazine's review of his old place in Ft. Greene, the best cupcakes in town.
His wife Marvel is a superstar as well, a singer of awesome soul & power. Like check out this outstanding performance of "Love For Sale" that the Q unearthed on the YouTube:
The two live in the building on Nostrand as well. I think it's fair to say that the Allens are here to stay. So stop by as they settle in, because you can say you were there from the Git-Go.
