How do you get a permit to open an eatery in Miami? Make sure the mayor likes your pan con lechon.
Or so it went for Delsa Bernardo, whose tasty cheffery Manny Diaz experienced at the Upper East Side’s Green Market. Now politicians and nonpoliticians alike can try her Cubanesque concoctions at Yiya’s Bakery, which opened last month with nary a peep.
Chow down on Cuban sandwiches (with six-hour roasted pork and Dijon), chicken wraps, salads, and the like. Follow up with pastries: from strudel and guayaba (guava-filled dough) to tiramisu and coco y queso (look it up). The mom-and-pop shop even makes its own vinaigrette with herbs grown on the windowsill.
Stop in for lunch (it’s open only till 4 p.m.) and hunker down at a window seat with a copy of a local mag.
It’s a fine state of affairs.
Yiya’s Bakery, 646 Northeast 79th Street, Upper East Side (305-754-3337).
