Concourse Opens at 86 Delancey

Posted on: June 12th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

Security gates at 86 Delancey Street have uncharacteristically remained open in the year since Jimmy Jazz vacated the Lower East Side. It had moved to this location beneath Sol Moscot back in 2009 after two decades at the corner of Suffolk Street (now Sam Chang’s Holiday Inn).

Anyway, back to 86 Delancey. The high-ceiling storefront wilted before our eyes as the months passed without incident. Leasing signs remained in the windows and hanging from the marquee flagpole. Then it happened. Last week a painter was spotted touching up the interior over a few-day period, signaling in no uncertain terms another business had been chosen.

We are told the newcomer is called Concourse, and like its counterparts closer to Clinton Street, is very much in the vein of old-school budget threads. Yesterday was the official opening.
