Noodle Bar Not Long for Orchard Street

Noodle Bar had an impressive five-and-a-half-year run at the corner of Orchard and Stanton Streets. But now the end is nigh. The SLA agenda this month reveals that a new entity is currently angling for the high-profile Hell Square space. One that hopes to continue in a similar culinary vein with a Chinese cafe concept.

And like its predecessor, owner Scott Kasen now seeks a restaurant wine license for 172 Orchard. Application materials submitted to Community Board 3 indicate that the newcomer is gunning for 2 am closing times daily. The layout won’t change much, either, but there will be french doors onsite.

Noodle Bar first arrived on Orchard back in 2007, immediately after two-year-old Zozo’s Juice and Grille bit the dust (their fried veggies and onion rings were awesome).

When Those Feral Pigeons You See in the Park Are Actually Sculptures

As city denizens, we’re pretty much hard-wired to hate ferral pigeons. Perptually in the way, shitting on shoulders, and nesting in the AC units. A nuisance. Some might say they’re rats with wings and shouldn’t be encouraged (i.e. fed). But tell that to Brooklyn resident Tina Trachtenburg – also known as the “Mother Pigeon.” The […]

Ricky’s is Opening Another Halloween Store Inside the Old Chase Bank on Delancey

The defeated storefront of the old Chase Bank on Delancey worked well for the purposes of the Urs Fischer sculpture exhibit. Its armor of tags and paint was easily a textbook example of devolution. But the Gagosian-sponsored art display ended months ago; so, too, the sheath of thick graffiti coverage. Now the alt-retail specialists at […]
