Cheeky Sandwiches on Orchard St.
Roughly three weeks ago, local favorite Cheeky’s Sandwiches met the might of the Department of Health. Inspectors dropped by 35 Orchard Street on June 12, and logged 33 violation points for infractions that included live mice and roaches in and around “food areas.” This mid-month visit ultimately resulted in closure, albeit temporary.
Owner Din Yates seized the opportunity afforded by the mandatory closure and began renovating his cozy eatery. The remodeling includes access to the basement space. Once complete, the additional subterranean real estate will offer extra seating for diners.
Scheduled reopening date is sometime within the next two weeks. Yates also tells us that they might do delivery-only service if the basement is not ready within this time frame. You know, just in case. Either way, you needn’t wait much longer to fill your belly with Cheeky Sandwiches.
This latest bump in the road arrives eight months after Yates expanded into Greenpoint with a new sandwich spinoff called Bread for the Eater.
Cheeky Sandwiches opened at 35 Orchard in January 2010.
