Coming Soon: Red Mango at 145 Allen Street

Posted on: October 4th, 2010 at 6:35 am by

Looks like the Lower East Side might soon become the next staging ground for an epic fro-yo battle.  First to enter the local arena is Red Mango. It does so after having lost footholds in Greenwich Village and on St. Mark’s Place.  But we shouldn’t count out the competition – Pinkberry and 16 Handles might be looking to score some real estate nearby.  Please, say it ain’t so. Pretty please, with a cherry on top.

According to the Red Mango website, this latest city location is at 145 Allen Street, longtime home of the Mi Pueblo Deli and Grocery. The bodega has had a rough couple years, and seemed to be closed more often than not recently.  Plus, there was an encounter with the law back in early 2009, allegedly due to “stolen property.”

There’s other frozen competition in the immediate vicinity.  Gourmet purveyors Lulu & Mooky’s is just a few doors down, Il Laboratorio del Gelato is two blocks south, and Baskin Robbins is over at Delancey and Norfolk.

Official status of the forthcoming neighborhood bane is “coming soon.”
