Kitty’s will open at 9 Stanton St.
“Jewish soul food” is seemingly making a comeback in and around the Lower East Side. The torch-bearer of this resurgence might be Russ & Daughters with its hotly anticipated new sit-in cafe at 127 Orchard Street. Followed by the forthcoming Black Seed bagel shop over at 170 Elizabeth.
Let’s complete the trifecta.
Something called Kitty’s is moving into the old Mangiami space at 9 Stanton, and will serve up said ethnic comfort cuisine. We don’t have menus or much else. However, an employee inside the restaurant revealed that they’re amidst soft previews, and a more official opening could happen as early as the end of this week.
Last July, Richard Kimmel of the Box sought an asset sale and corporate change here at 9 Stanton. We’ve thus far received no confirmation that Kimmel and company are involved here. It doesn’t appear so.
As of now, though, the liquor license is active, and remains in the name of the predecessor.
