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.

We rarely saw anyone grazing in there, but business persevered nevertheless. The end came yesterday evening. Pomme’s last communication occurred via Facebook at around 4pm. Shortly thereafter, […]

That Essex Market ‘Street Seat’ Won’t be Happening this Year

Woes at Essex Street Market continue. The 75-year-old facility is still suffering from lack of foot traffic and an overall visibility problem, thanks in large part to confusion over Essex Crossing. (Site 2 will include real estate for the new market.) Initial messaging from developers seemed to weave a narrative that the market was closed. […]
