Plenty of corner delis and bodegas start slashing prices near the end of the day, trying to offload their goods before closing. But it's always a treat to find a discount somewhere worthwhile, as does Danny at Food in Mouth:
I've always wondered what bakeries do with excess product at the end of the day. When I went to Grandaisy in the Upper West Side, I discovered that if you're lucky, they give you some of the excess, if it's near closing time. I went in to get a piece of pizza bianca, and came out with that and a little tart looking thing [pictured above].
I'd take a Grandaisy pastry over a half-price sandwich any day. Any other notable end-of-day discounts (or freebies) around town?
