Strange Bedfellows: Bread, Madonna, Gravestones

Strange Bedfellows: Bread, Madonna, Gravestones

High real-estate costs make for strange bedfellows: Pedestrians passing Grande Monuments, seller of gravestones and a longtime fixture on Graham Avenue, have been double-taking at the sight of hand-chalked-signs advertising bread. Just what is this bread made from, they wonder?

Well, the bread is excellent, and it comes from Il Fornaretto Bakery in Bensonhurst. Loaves for sale include olive, whole wheat, and prosciutto. The bread often sells out in late afternoon. 382 Graham Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, 718-782-1800
