[Photo: Little Muenster]Just shy of a year into its existence on the Lower East Side, local cult favorite Little Muenster has some big cheese news. The cozy sandwich shop at Stanton Street is now expanding its menu by, among other things, pairing with Saxelby Cheesemongers and exploring different wine and beer offerings.
Earlier this week the newly-engaged co-owners – Adam Schneider and Vanessa Palazio – announced the following changes to the Little Muenster ecosystem, effective February 8:
- New meat and cheese plates, with Essex Market all-stars Saxelby Cheesemongers supplying most of the dairy.
- Other select cheeses will be made in house.
- Now accepting phone reservations and via OpenTable.
- Chef Andrew Millspaugh (formerly of Lupa, now at La Grenouille) is on board to help with the housemade pastas, which will feature plenty of cheese. That includes the new addition of ravioli with asiago cheese and butternut squash.
- Beer and wine cocktails. They worked with Tommy Ferrick of Walter’s in Fort Greene on the cocktails. Notable concoctions include Aperol Split (Aperol, Lemon Juice, Simple Sugar and Wheat Beer garnished with a Cherry and Orange Wedge), the Berry Lightness of Drinking (Dry White Wine, Muddled Strawberries and Limes, Simple Sugar garnished with Limes), and the Miss Mary Goodnight (Lillet, Dry Vermouth, Champagne garnered with a Lemon Peel)
For many who grew up in a certain era, the name Bill Graham sparks Proustian memories of life-changing rock-and-roll shows. And if you were in San Francisco or New York City, the music impresario’s Fillmore concert venues were the greatest places in the world to see live music. Starting in 1965, Graham was booking and […]
Police are after two men suspected of holding up a Delancey Street bodega at gunpoint. The robbery – caught on camera – happened shortly before 4:30pm at the N&N Delancey Smoke Shop near the southwest corner of Allen Street. One suspect asked the clerk for cigarettes, while the other reportedly demanded money with an assault […]
More than a decade after its conception, the ambitious Lowline project is kaput. Stopped in its tracks due to financial constraints, Crain’s reports. The founders of the $83 million subterranean park – Dan Barasch and James Ramsey – announced this week that the project is no longer viable. That despite years of neighborhood outreach, appearances […]
For Chinatown, it’s a perfect storm. At a time when area businesses are reeling from the “Double-Whammy” of closed streets (due to the fire at 70 Mulberry) and tourists avoiding the area fearing Coronavirus, film productions are also taking away curbside parking. More than four blocks’ worth last Friday. Chinatown stores have long suffered a […]
Update your bulletin board. The Bulletin Broads are through with Prince Street. The Brooklyn-based store and feminist collective lasted about three years at 27 Prince before its recent shutter. A poster taped to the window bids farewell to the neighborhood and spins the news. “Peace out, Nolita, it’s been real,” it reads. And also, that […]
Looks like an imposter might be in the mix. Concerned readers noticed that Chen Wong, the Chinese restaurant on Madison Street that folded at the end of the year, appears to be taking orders on Seamless. It still states the same address, boasts a robust menu that apparently includes items not on the original, and […]
In the wake of the devastating fire at the old Public School 23 building in Chinatown, the cleanup and rehab is full throttle. City contractors starting assembling scaffolding at the scorched 70 Mulberry Street earlier this week. The web of bars is making its way up the whole structure ahead of imminent debris removal. Meanwhile, […]
The plywood is deposed, revealing the second fast-fry joint for Hell Square. Indeed, it took eighteen months, and several different murals on its shed, but Bel Fries is pretty much ready to go at 132 Ludlow Street. When we first broke word of its arrival in September 2018, we had been told it was called […]
WeWork just opened its latest downtown co-working location, with an enormous stake in a new SoHo development. Nameplate is up. The embattled company took a chunk of 140 Crosby Street (aka 606 Broadway), which came on line last year. The footprint is massive, with office space sprawled across five floors of the modern building. For […]
This Valentine’s Day, Pornhub is pulling out the stops with a Lower East Side store. Beginning today, the porn website is hosting a two-day pop-up on Allen Street. Located at the corner of Broome Street – and steps from the Janina synagogue – the stunt is meant to woo horny locals to become premium customers. […]
