Nor’East Clam Shack to Become Alexander Olch Seasonal Pop-Up

Posted on: December 6th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

As of this week, Grey Lady’s four-month-old Nor’East Clam Shack at 77 Delancey is temporarily shutting down for the winter months. The window paper was enough of a clue; it’s hibernation until warmer weather prevails. During the rest of the season, the tiny adjoining store space will be leased to a boutique threads shop.

The pop-up retail occupant is Alexander Olch and his line of men’s formal accessories, including neckties, bow-ties and handkerchiefs. It’ll be open through the duration of the season, with Nor’East returning sometime in the spring with a refined menu. Owner Gavin McLaughlin tells us that there will be longer business hours with more soups and sanwiches offered.
