‘Green and Brown’ Coffee Shop Opening Tomorrow at 115 Stanton Street

Last modified August 7, 2014 at 10:13 am

The ground level of 115 Stanton Street underwent quite the makeover these last few months. Conversion from the backroom catering kitchen of El Nuevo Amanecer to front-house cafe have been in play since February, when the windows were first covered with yellowing newspaper. The owner confirmed the identity of the newcomer as “Green and Brown,” a […]

Classic El Sombrero Signage Probably Won’t Return to the Exterior of 108 Stanton Street

Posted August 1, 2014 at 6:03 am

Hate to burst the bubble, but the wonderfully classic El Sombrero signage will not return to the exterior of 108 Stanton Street when the reboot launches. The marquee is now a rustic wood flavor with evenly-spaced lighting. Before you reach for that tissue, though, take comfort in the knowledge that the faded relic hasn’t altogether […]

Michael Shah’s Controversial Liquor License for Rochelle’s Renewed Without Community Input

Posted July 31, 2014 at 6:00 am

The liquor license of Leave Rochelle Out of It is set to expire after today. Or so we thought. The license was mysteriously renewed without first appearing before Community Board 3 for input. As such, our research shows that Matt Levine remains listed as co-licensor for a business in which he has no ownership. Indeed, […]

Looks Like Little Muenster is Closing Its Grilled Cheese Spot on Stanton Street

Last modified July 29, 2014 at 12:19 pm

While one grilled cheese joint begins business on Allen Street, another is sunsetting. Little Muenster is seemingly in the twilight of its tenure at 100 Stanton Street. Melted fortune, if you will. That much is clear by Misrahi’s tombstone signage sitting above the entryway. We reached out to the Little Muenster and received the following […]

‘Balvanera’ Opens at 152 Stanton Street Tomorrow Night

Posted July 28, 2014 at 6:06 am

With Azul Bistro now a footnote in the local history books, Balvanera is taking the torch of Argentinean cuisine at 152 Stanton Street. Paper curtains were summarily deposed from the windows of 152 Stanton last night. Balvanera – named for the neighborhood in Buenos Aires – is nearly there. We walked by the restaurant yesterday, and […]

Balvanera is replacing Azul Bistro

‘Balvanera’ to Debut Its Argentinian Cuisine in Old Azul Space on Stanton Street

Posted July 2, 2014 at 5:17 am

Opened in 2001, Azul Bistro was an early pioneer on the Lower East Side, east of Essex Street. It certainly had a good decade-plus run, having shuttered just after the new year. The closure wasn’t too surprising, but was a slow demise. Peak hours in recent years were generally empty, and the establishment seemingly lost […]

You Might See Jason Sudeikis Filming ‘Sleeping with Other People’ in Hell Square Today

Posted June 26, 2014 at 6:07 am

If the constant construction and roadwork wasn’t bad enough, production on a new ensemble romantic comedy will simultaneously clog Hell Square later today. The standard “no parking” signs are in place, cordoning the area near the corner of Essex and Stanton Streets. The film in question is called Sleeping with Other People, and stars Jason […]
