True to its word, pioneering vegan fusion mainstay Tiengarden is temporarily down for revamp. The seventeen-year-old Lower East Side establishment quietly closed at the end of December with hopes of creating a “totally brand new and exciting” experience on the other side of renovations. Sidewalk shed arrived at 170 Allen Street within the last couple weeks, fitting in rather nicely with the mess of construction materials already on that part of the block (i.e. 163 Orchard hotel).

Interior remodeling activity should last, at best, until sometime in February. Give or take three months, of course.
