Sour ‘Chef’ may turn ‘Sweet’

It could be a sweet ending to a sour story.

The pastry chef behind the Sweet Melissa Patisserie mini-chain is considering opening in the Henry Street storefront where Busy Chef Dan Kaufman allegedly swindled $25,000 from patrons’ credit cards, the Brooklyn Heights Blog reported on Monday.

Melissa Murphy, who already runs two popular shops on Seventh Avenue in Park Slope and Court Street in Carroll Gardens, told The Brooklyn Paper that she has always wanted to open in Brooklyn Heights — even though the storefront has a bad history.

“I love that spot, I love Brooklyn Heights, and I think that Brooklyn Heights would be receptive to us,” said Murphy, a regular Brooklyn Paper contributor.

Murphy, who is still negotiating the lease with former Busy Chef partner Alan Young, said she might take over the adjoining storefronts at the corner of Cranberry Street that once housed the high-end pizzeria Oven and the ice cream shop Blue Pig.

The details have not yet been finalized, but it is possible that the shop — which would be made-over in a Sweet Melissa farmhouse style and could boast a sidewalk café — might open as early as June.
