Coming Soon: Cocoron at 61 Delancey

Posted on: July 30th, 2010 at 6:26 am by

61 Delancey has found a new occupant after almost a year of vacancy.  And the early word? Well, the former Don the Verb space near Allen Street will soon don the noodles, as it were.

The obligatory brown paper was put in place earlier this week, along with a window sign announcing the new venture.  Delancey denizens, meet Cocoron, a Japanese eatery to feature “heartwarming” home cooking and hospitality. Cocoron will specialize in Soba noodle dishes.

The hype poster reads as follows:

There is a new Japanese restaurant coming soon.  Who are we?  We are Cocoron.  A cocoron means “heartwarming” in Japanese.  The concept behind Cocoron is to introduce a taste of Japanese home cooking and hospitality through healthy Soba dishes and other Japanese favorites.

Come share the “Heartwarming experience with us.”  See you soon!

Work is ongoing behind closed doors. No word yet on the opening date.
