“Ghost on Eldridge” Cafe Opening at 132 Eldridge Street on Friday
A new Lower East Side cafe with an eclectic namesake is poised to open on Eldridge Street.
In early 2011, Panade Cafe leaped to the larger 132 Eldridge Street. It didn’t last long – the cozy six-year-old cafe returned to its former HQ just as quickly with tail firmly between legs. To this day, circumstances of the cross-pavement cafe shuffle remain unknown.
Shortly after the homecoming, it came to pass that Woodward Gallery was planning its own cafe for 132 Eldridge. But after the announcement, the site remained rather quiet, with naught but paper in the windows. The first true significant signs of progress in the public sphere was the recent addition of the Illy coffee facade fixture above the entrance. A couple weeks later, and it’s ready to rock n roll.
According to a computer printout in the doorway, the eatery will officially begin serving on Friday. It’s reportedly called Ghost on Eldridge, juicy info gleaned only by jumping the harmless hurdle of a QR code. No other info is available regarding the venture at the moment. Just the simple website landing page. Check it out on Friday.
