“Fifty-one years [this] May,” said Maria Litwin of her marriage to Gregory Litwin, “Fifty-one years on May the twentieth.”

The seniors of Vladeck Houses, the Litwins included, were all smiles as they wait to be served their Valentine’s Day Luncheon in the Vladeck Resident Community room on 328 Madison Street. The room, humble in size and a faint yellow in color, had been transformed two hours earlier by diligent and dutiful volunteers who decorated the room’s otherwise unassuming walls with parchment paper and vegetable stamps, flower petals and vases of carnations.

Still, there’s plenty to be excited about in the arrival of Bread for the Eater, a new café/bar from the team that brought Cheeky Sandwiches to the Lower East Side.
