Venue Info

The original Leske's opened in Bay Ridge in 1961, and got new owners in 1987, but in 2011 it was forced to close. Within a year, however, it was reopened by new owners who bought the original space, brought back the same bakers and recipes, and opened to the extreme happiness of the neighborhood.
