Moscow 57 at 168 1/2 Delancey

Moscow 57 will officially open its doors on 168 1/2 Delancey Street Wednesday night with a performance by Tony Romano and Cleve Douglass to promote the new album Desert Flower.

The bright red canopy first arrived on Delancey back in November, a long-running tease for those who were looking forward to the arrival of Moscow 57. Three months before, founder Ellen Kaye and business partner Seth Goldman had announced their intentions to the community and received approval from CB3. It’ll be a unique venue based on Russian Central Asian food and accompanied by a curated live events program (i.e. jazz, poetry readings, blues, folk). Brunch and breakfast will also be a component here as well.

Until now, Moscow 57 had curated live performance pop-ups across the city; this brick-and-mortar restaurant/performance space is a first.

Ellen Kaye has roots in the business; her family owned the Russian Tea Room from 1947 – 1996.

And then There’s this Apartment with a Tub in the Kitchen

The phenomenon began with the advent of plumbing in city tenements between 1901 and 1905. With bathhouses no longer necessary to wash up, the kitchen became central. The tub here made sense given […]
