Pat O’Malley of Hungry Pigeon named the ‘baker of the year’

Hungry Pigeon entered the South Philly restaurant scene in the fall of 2015, bringing pigeon and other dishes with “creative quirk” to Fabric Row.

Food critic Craig Laban already awarded the restaurant a three bell review, now Laban is taking Hungry Pigeon’s Philadelphia ranking to the next level, naming Pat O’Malley of the restaurant as the “baker of the year.”

From Laban:

Pat O’Malley. The all-day café concept depends on a great baker — and Hungry Pigeon has one of the best. Co-owner Pat O’Malley, who once ran Balthazar’s famed bakery, is now turning out the finest croissants in Philly, legendary banana bread sticky buns, and what may be the best pumpkin pie I ever ate.
