Contra Guys Will Open the Casual ‘Wildair’ on Orchard Street Next Month

Around this time last year, Contra scored the go-ahead from Community Board 3 to open a casual, “creative American” restaurant at 94 Allen Street.

In covering this slab for years, this is the surest signal that a change of the guard is in the cards. Indeed, the next entrant is already at bat to paint a mural here. Acclaimed street artist Ron English has […]
