Panda NYC suffered a slow death last summer, thanks in part to some poaching efforts by the Department of Health. The gallery-slash-nightspot had operated at 139 Chrystie Street for nigh on two years. Its replacement is nearly ready to rock and roll.

Almost immediately after the departure of its predecessor, work began on a new “sit-down” seafood establishment called The Boil. Construction finally wrapped a few weeks ago, and the space has been sitting pretty ever since. Storefront fixtures arrived last week, including illuminated signs and window leafing. Below is a quick peek inside the establishment, with bar up front and some dining in the rear (i.e. the mullet setup). Liquor license was activated by the State Liquor Authority earlier this month.

Arrival of The Boil marks yet another player in the nascent trend of seafood shacks sprouting all over the Lower East Side. Expect an opening in the coming days.

Case in point was a rowdy incident this past Monday night (late) involving a crew of revelers outside the Hotel Indigo. A tipster tells us that […]

The city will screw the Lower East Side waterfront by allowing this 1,000-foot tower to proceed. Indeed, the Department of City Planning reversed course this week, and will now hear the case for this monstrosity. This despite the ongoing litigation over the contested few parcels on the backside of Extell’s One Manhattan Square. It’s certainly a […]

St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street is Dead, for Real This Time

Okay, so now it’s really happened. Again. The reincarnated St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street – also known as Rivington F+B – is officially kaput. This past Wednesday was its final night in business. The gates are now shuttered for good, capping a decade (including a year-long hiatus) for the establishment. The closure follows two months […]

MTA Brushes off Vehement Local Opposition to ‘Gracias Mama’ Entrance on Rutgers Street

The MTA sees nothing wrong with having a restaurant entrance mere feet from a bustling subway station. Specifically that of Gracias Mama, whose principals (Koorosh Bakhtiar and Nima Garos) are trying to alter their method of operation, which could become a harbinger of overcrowding in a small area. The bold choice to move the front […]
