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.
