Korilla BBQ will Open its Second Brick-and-Mortar at 55 Spring Street

Posted November 11, 2016 at 5:11 am

No sooner did Ceci-Cela Patisserie and Eight Turn Crepe depart than the new class of tenants arrive at 55 Spring Street. Well, at least one new business. Today brings word that food truck favorite Korilla BBQ is opening its second brick-and-mortar location here. (Korilla HQ is on Third Avenue near Astor Place.) The facade of floor-to-ceiling […]

Here’s the Likely Reason Why Ceci-Cela and Eight Turn Crepe Left 55 Spring Street

Posted November 8, 2016 at 5:00 am

When the Renatus Group purchased 55 Spring Street two years ago for $15.5 million, its beloved ground-level business, Ceci-Cela, was given marching orders. There would be no lease renewal for the twenty-five-year old establishment, which officially departed Little Italy last week. So, the patisserie proactively found a new HQ at 14 Delancey Street and reopened […]

Chefs Club Brings its Fast Casual ‘Counter’ to Former Spring Natural Space

Posted October 31, 2016 at 5:16 am

When Spring Street Natural was forced from its namesake street last year, the subsequent rent hike was essentially an admission that the next tenant would be something more bougie. We learned at the time of their departure from 62 Spring – back in late 2015 – that founding owner-operator Rus Schoenholt faced an expiring lease with a […]

Mic Drop: State Denies ‘The Stand’ Comedy Club a Chance on the Bowery

Posted June 24, 2016 at 5:11 am

After four years on Third Avenue, The Stand was planning on relocating the comedy club to a basement on the Bowery. Apparently some impending development is pushing them out. However, the state denied owner Paul Italia and company a liquor license this week for the subterranean space below 2 Spring Street. Opposition to the establishment was entrenched from […]

Ricky’s Opens Temporary Shop at Former Spring Natural Location

Posted June 2, 2016 at 9:24 am

Spring Street Natural closed its long-running restaurant at 62 Spring Street back in early January. The forced farewell – after thirty years, no less – was reportedly the result of an exorbitant rent hike. Yet owner Rustam Schoenholt didn’t give up and scored a new location around the corner on Kenmare. Since that time, the high visibility […]

Ben Sherman to Officially Close SoHo Store Next Week After 10 Years on the Block

Last modified May 26, 2016 at 4:36 pm

SoHo fashion outpost for anglophiles, Ben Sherman, has been on life support (i.e. month-to-month) since last fall. Its stay at 96 Spring Street was extended several times since October in order to deplete all inventory. As previously reported, the brand is ditching its longtime digs after exactly ten years on the block. When we first […]

New York City is made of neighborhoods, which, like many New Yorkers, are constantly changing and reinventing themselves. In today’s era of warp-speed hyper-gentrification, it has become increasingly difficult to keep track of what came before; but that only makes it seem all the more important. For more years than we care to admit, we have […]

‘The Stand’ Moves Forward with Basement Comedy Club on the Bowery Despite Community Rejection

Posted April 27, 2016 at 5:00 am

​Back in mid-December, we brought word that the ownership behind The Stand comedy club (Paul Italia) was eyeing the cavernous space below the corner of Bowery and Spring Street. However, the opposition turned out to ensure this didn’t happen. The applicant appeared before Community Board 2 in January to obtain approval for a full liquor […]

Level Group Firm Backs out of Spring Street Sales Office

Last modified February 18, 2016 at 10:23 am

​Back in the summer of 2014, the then-six-month-old midtown-based Level Group real estate brokerage unveiled a pithy new campaign. Wise-crack signage in the window of 6 Spring Street proclaimed the arrival of a new micro-neighborhood: “Soholita,” that area of Spring Street just west of the Bowery. Guess the joke is on them. “We wanted a […]

Here’s Your First Look at the New ‘Spring Natural’ Opening Next Week on Kenmare Street

Posted February 10, 2016 at 5:10 am

Spring Natural dropped the “street,” and is almost ready to reopen around the corner to 98 Kenmare Street. As previously reported, longtime owner-operator Rus Schoenholt was basically forced from their home of thirty-three years thanks to rent gouging. Indeed, with an expiring lease on hand, the landlord reportedly more than quintupled the monthly rent. Anyway, the year of […]
