New Seafood Restaurant Might Open at Former ‘Mimi & Coco’ on Rivington Street

Mimi & Coco, the popular Japanese restaurant that debuted in June 2013, closed and vacated 92 Rivington Street last June. Newish landlord Thor Equities – they bought the building in 2015 – subsequently sat on the commercial space and waited for the perfect occupant to sign on. That day is nigh.

Now, here comes something called Chamusca (“Harvest of the Sea LLC”) at 92 Rivington Street, another in a new class of Lower East Side seafood restaurants.

The requisite community notice for a liquor license application appeared on the front windows last week. It identifies the aforementioned entity as a “seafood restaurant with sustainable and seasonal menu,” and alerts locals to the SLA subcommittee hearing on the matter next month.

We’ll have more on this place once it becomes available. Stay tuned.

‘Kind Regards’ Launches in Cake Shop’s Old Spot this Weekend

Cake Shop’s former owners are sending Kind Regards to Ludlow Street. After three months behind Fort Knox-like lock and key, the eleven-year-old music venue has been succeeded. Transformed into Kind Regards, an endeavor with no link to the past; a bi-level cocktail bar and lounge. Makes sense. When Cake Shop went bust in late-December, owner-brothers Nick […]
