It’s been more than six years since Cocoron introduced its first soba shop on Delancey Street. The cramped restaurant gained instant popularity and now counts three locations to its name including Goemon Curry. Now the mini-chain is ready for its newest outpost, adding “Noodle with Nutrition” to the block.

As previously reported, a third Cocoron is a couple weeks shy of opening at 16 Delancey Street, a former restaurant supply shop. Interior build-out of “Cocoron 16” had been ongoing since last fall. Upon its imminent debut, the spinoff will trounce the other locations in overall footprint. We’re told it’s roughly 1.25-times bigger than 37 Kenmare.

The team also scored a beer-wine license, which is now active according to the State Liquor Authority.

Cocoron debuted its Japanese comfort food at 61 Delancey in November 2010. The company expanded across the Bowery at 37 Kenmare in 2012. Goemon Curry followed a couple years later at the same address. All four Cocoron-Goemon eateries are within four blocks of each other.

The next month, February 2016, the proverbial shit hit the fan. Indeed, the […]

Laces Out: Payless is Closing Delancey Street Store After 6 Years

Payless ShoeSource is a goner. The six-year-old store at 130 Delancey Street – inside the big-box base of the Blue condo – is closing in short order. Discount signs in the windows announce the closure and requisite sale, employing the tagline, “closing here but open near.” (The nearest location is 34th Street.) Payless has apparently […]

The corner of Prince and Elizabeth Streets was noticeably quiet yesterday as Cafe Habana’s lunch patrons were met with a locked door instead of the trendy cafe’s signature Cuban grilled corn. Throughout the day, would-be patrons who normally loiter outside while waiting for tables or chomping down on corn, appeared confused at the closure. That […]
