Italian Bakery Palombo to Replace Burger King Near Yankee Stadium | DNAinfo

Good riddance to a fast food joint in the South Bronx

Great news for the South Bronx! Italian Bakery Palombo is coming to 161st Street and will replace Burger King on Walton Avenue!

DNAinfo reports:

“The cafe, which has been on Arthur Avenue for several years, aims to open on East 161st Street and Walton Avenue by next Easter, according to building property manager Paul Mingrino. He said that the cafe would be a great fit for the community.

“It’s in a good spot. The area needs it,” he said. “You’ve got the courthouse right across the street, and with the neighborhood coming up, I think it’s going in the right direction.”

Burger King will leave the building at 103-107 E. 161st St. on Dec. 31, and Palombo signed a 25-year lease on the property, according to Barry Nissen, the real estate broker who put together the deal.

Welcome Palombo's!
