The Egg Shop Finds a Home on Elizabeth Street

At the onset of 2014, the year-old Peix Bar de Mariscos (Catalan for “Fish”) at 151 Elizabeth Street quietly folded. Assets of the seafood eatery were subsequently sold to a new restaurant with a familiar concept. Remember that late-night egg shop pitched to Community Board 3 for 43 Canal Street? Well, it’s them. The Egg Shop.
The egg obsessed personnel – co-owners Sarah Schneider and Demetri Makoulis, along with chef Nick Korbee (Smith and Mills) – took the one-trick pony and settled at 151 Elizabeth. Menu is what you might expect, stocked with breakfast-like treats including French toast, Greek yogurt, and even customizable egg-and-cheese sandwiches. The latter is their bread and butter. Meanwhile, the old Peix neons and awning are still in place.
The Egg Shop opens this weekend.
Xicala Wine Bar once held court at 151 Elizabeth Street for the better part of a decade. It was forged by the hand of Ignacio Carballido in the early aughts, years before he opened Casa Mezcal on Orchard Street. But he decided to change up the concept in spring 2013, instead opting to join chef Jordy Lavanderos and manager Paula Ginestar-Campanaro. The result of that collaboration was Peix.
