Katz’s Deli Teams Up With The Grinch To Serve a ‘Roast Beast’ Sandwich This Holiday Season

Posted October 31, 2014 at 10:09 am

Katz’s Deli is ringing in the holidays by joining forces with one of the season’s most nefarious, misunderstood characters – the Grinch. Owner Jake Dell is crafting a limited edition sandwich for their holiday menu – that of the “Roast Beast” variety. No word yet on if they’ve locked down the cartoon or Jim Carey for the […]

Posted October 31, 2014 at 5:21 am

Clinton Hill favorite Speedy Romeo is crossing the bridge to Clinton Street. However, at the expense of Fatta Cuckoo. It was no secret that Fatta Cuckoo was undergoing a massive transformation at 63 Clinton Street. We reported earlier this month that chef-owner Leah Tinari would only have weekend service for the next two months, at […]

Hooters keeps the smut alive on 33rd St.

Meanwhile, Hooters Will Open at the Former Peep World Space Next Month

Posted October 30, 2014 at 9:05 am

Two years ago this past March, midtown lost one of the last vestiges of its seedy past – the porn shop and nudie booth near Penn Station called Peep World. However, selling sex will remain a central component of the newcomer at 155 West 33rd Street, albeit in a manner more socially acceptable. Original Hooters […]

Galli Restaurant is Now Open for Service at 98 Rivington Street

Posted October 30, 2014 at 6:10 am

The second location of Galli Restaurant officially opened in Hell Square Tuesday evening after a weekend of trials. 98 Rivington Street had spent the better part of a year under the knife, ever since ‘inoteca ended its decade-plus run at the address last February. Decor seemingly skews swank, and carries a less homey feel than its […]

Lucky Cheng’s Might Take Over the Former Living Room Space on Ludlow

Posted October 30, 2014 at 5:21 am

It’s been a rough few months (nay, years), but looks like Lucky Cheng’s is making a solid comeback. The cabaret – popular for bachelorette parties – had relocated to Times Square from its longtime First Avenue perch back in 2012. It was never quite the same. Two years later, owner Hayne Suthon passed away of breast […]

Shi Eurasia Moves Around the Corner to 166 Allen Street

Posted October 28, 2014 at 6:10 am

Orchard Street lost another unique business, but it remains in the neighborhood. As we first reported last month, Shi Eurasia sought out a new home around the corner due to a crushing rent hike (increased to $9,000). The specialty store resided at 143 Orchard for more than three years before the forced change in scenery. […]

Happy Ending Reboot on Broome Street Will Debut in 10 Days

Last modified October 28, 2014 at 12:53 pm

A happy ending it wasn’t for the club-lounge at 302 Broome Street. The venue shuttered exactly a year ago, leaving a nightlife monopoly on the block for Louie & Chan and the 303. But there is new life for the space. Oliver Stumm and the Cafe Select crew are now almost ready to unleash their […]

Kottu House Will Soon Serve Sri Lankan Fare at 250 Broome Street

Posted October 28, 2014 at 6:00 am

Home Espresso Bar failed out of 250 Broome Street back in July; evicted by the landlord. Well, a replacement just signed the lease last Thursday morning. Another miniscule eatery is on the way. No sooner was the ink dry than this branded fork appeared in the window (“Keep calm and eat kottu”), announcing the forthcoming arrival […]

In About Face, CB3 Will Now Hear the Sixth Ward Liquor License Renewal in Public

Posted October 27, 2014 at 6:00 am

The applied pressure worked. We learned last month that Community Board 3 would hear the license renewal for the Sixth Ward behind closed doors, continuing a controversial practice shunned by neighbors. Disconcerting, especially given the establishment’s steady complaint history over the years. District Manager Susan Stetzer has since reversed course, though. A tipster informs us […]
