Cocoron Owner Yoshihito Kira Planning Japanese Curry Restaurant Next Door on Kenmare Street

Posted October 9, 2014 at 5:30 am

Entrepreneur at 29 Kenmare Street shuttered this past May after the fairly typical two-year run. The Japanese boutique opened in March 2012 and featured hip threads for both men and women. It wasn’t long, though, before a restaurant came calling for the former orange box at the northwest corner of Elizabeth. In fact, the endeavor […]

Sun Noodle Will Debut its ‘Ramen Lab’ Next Month on Kenmare Street

Posted October 3, 2014 at 6:00 am

Yakitori Tora and the Ramen Lab at 70 Kenmare were both under the proverbial knife for roughly the same time period. The former debuted last week, while the latter is still a month out. Though you wouldn’t have known it judging this storefront by its cover. Before the window dressing was deposed, the gut reaction […]

Elderly Female Pedestrian Struck and Killed by Van on Kenmare Street Yesterday

Last modified February 13, 2015 at 12:04 am

The citywide “Vision Zero” safety initiative might be a de Blasio priority, but it still has a long way to go in protecting the locals. Especially in and around dangerous Delancey Street, where traffic issues are myriad. (A “slow zone” here or there just isn’t gonna cut it) Yesterday afternoon, a fatal casualty resulted just one […]

Yakitori Tora Japanese Joint Now Serving on Kenmare Street

Posted September 25, 2014 at 6:00 am

The revamped and reconfigured 70-78 Kenmare Street welcomed its latest occupant this week. Another restaurant to join the so-called “Kenmare Club.” Yakitori Tora debuted the other day without any press or fanfare. Just a menu box and open door. Its arrival just west of the Bowery was somewhat expected, as workers installed its branded maroon […]

Booted from the Bowery, Miss Hoe Now Operating on Kenmare Street

Posted September 17, 2014 at 6:08 am

Openhouse Gallery downsized its holdings last year, and ditched the 11 Kenmare outpost for good. The 600 square-foot hindquarters of Champ Depot subsequently hosted a succession of pop-up retailers, culminating this past summer with the arrival of a popular Bowery refugee. Eclectic boutique Miss Hoe chose 11 Kenmare (aka 176 Bowery) as the setting for its […]

Bradley Theodore Gives Burberry Skeletal Treatment with New Mural of Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne

Posted September 11, 2014 at 9:19 am

Prolific street artist Bradley Theodore returned to Kenmare Street yesterday to impart another mural evoking unique representations of prominent fashion figures. We’ve seen plenty of that lately – Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, Terry Richardson, and Nick Wooster. So this one painted on the facade of Mott Hardware is rather timely, completed on the final day […]

The Rivington Design House – no longer on its namesake street – is making waves. Their new headquarters at 52 Kenmare Street currently boasts a poster of a naked man in the window. Flaccid penis and all. The public nudity display is actually part of Bek Andersen’s gallery installation at the Rivington Design House called […]

Clos Wine Bar on Kenmare Street Folds

Posted July 15, 2014 at 6:07 am

Clos Wine Bar has lived up to its name, it seems. The year-old, 26-seat sipping spot at 64 Kenmare Street closed shop within the last couple weeks. Newspaper clippings now cover the front windows, and the phone number is no longer in service. Clos Wine Bar opened on Kenmare in March 2013, and always seemed […]

Lil Charlie’s Ends Its Illegal Basement Operation at Ken & Cook on Kenmare Street

Posted January 6, 2014 at 6:00 am

Caught red-handed, Ken & Cook at 19 Kenmare Street ultimately nixed its illegal basement club, Lil Charlie’s. New Year’s Eve was its last party on premise. Eater had the scoop last week, and reported that the ground-level restaurant will simply expand its operation into the dungeon instead. This will allow for bigger dinner parties and […]
