BROOKLYN - An Armenian family's new bakery in Sheepshead Bay has become an overnight success after word got out that it was the only one in New York baking lavash, a traditional bread from their homeland.

The Badalyan family opened Brooklyn Bread House on Jerome Avenue, which sells Russian, Georgian and Armenian-style pastries and breads. The lavash, a long, thin flatbread, is their bestseller and is baked fresh every day.

More than 2000 Armenians live in Brooklyn.
