Coming Soon: Little Muenster at 100 Stanton Street

Posted on: September 19th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

Fashion begets food at 100 Stanton Street, where longtime women’s boutique Miks closed its doors for good in early August.  Now we bring word that a kitschy new eatery is on the way.  One that reportedly has goals of being a so-called “grilled cheese heaven.”  Take note that Little Muenster will soon become part of the food landscape on the Lower East Side.

The announcement of this new grilled cheesery was definitely subtle.  Just a casual entry on the CB3 agenda for September.  Little Muenster will appear before the board in all its play-on-words glory, with intentions of scoring a wine and beer license.

It’s also worth mentioning that this isn’t the first time such an establishment pitched this part of Stanton Street.  Last year, a grilled cheese joint called Melted was briefly on the docket for number 101 (directly across the way), but failed to secure approval through Community Board 3. That was the end of that. Macaron purveyors Bisious Ciao opened there instead.
