Cheeky’s Sandwiches Will Probably Reopen in 2 Weeks

Posted July 1, 2014 at 6:00 am

Roughly three weeks ago, local favorite Cheeky’s Sandwiches met the might of the Department of Health. Inspectors dropped by 35 Orchard Street on June 12, and logged 33 violation points for infractions that included live mice and roaches in and around “food areas.” This mid-month visit ultimately resulted in closure, albeit temporary.

Posted June 25, 2014 at 6:09 am

When Spur Tree suddenly closed shop earlier this year, ownership promised patrons that the Jamaican-flavored hangout would return. Another Lower East Side location has proven elusive, though, so Plan B in now in effect. The brand has joined forces with its old neighbor on Orchard Street. We didn’t see this coming.
