When Spur Tree suddenly closed shop earlier this year, ownership promised patrons that the Jamaican-flavored hangout would return. Another Lower East Side location has proven elusive, though, so Plan B in now in effect. The brand has joined forces with its old neighbor on Orchard Street. We didn’t see this coming.

We just received word that Norman’s Cay swooped in for the rescue, and now offers a culinary collaboration with Spur Tree at 74 Orchard Street. Proprietor Ryan Chadwick confirmed the news, stating that he’d tapped the entire kitchen to help with his own Caribbean menu offering. The new venture is aptly titled “Spur Tree at Norman’s Cay.” Updated menu, published below, takes effect today (lion fish will return to the menu in a couple weeks).

Meanwhile, we hear that the Spur Tree folks continue to look for a more permanent presence in the area.
