Forgtmenot family is opening a new Greek spot a few doors down
For the moment, it remains the epicenter of cool.
The eastern terminus of Division Street continues its hot streak, yet will see more change in the next few months. We have it on good authority that the Chinese supply business at number 130 – Zhen Ling Tan Taoist – is to become a new restaurant. Apparently, the business had no lease and a suitor took the torch. Look no further than Forgtmenot.
More than two years after opening the hugely successful hang at 138 Division, the husband-wife ownership team of Paul and Abby Sierros are expanding once more. But with a different concept altogether. A source with knowledge of the project tells us that the duo just signed the lease at 130 Division, and are planning to open a full-service Greek restaurant called Kiki’s. Members of the restaurant family are reportedly partners in the new venture.
Details surrounding Kiki’s are otherwise scant at the moment. Yet from what we understand, this will be a legit restaurant without any of the masquerading we often see around the Lower East Side. Menu will consist of traditional Greek fare with affordable neighborhood prices – expect souvlaki, fresh fish. They’ll seek wine and beer privileges from Community Board 3 in the coming months.
130 Division is a huge get, especially given its proximity to the new Jarmulowsky hotel conversion currently underway across the street. Judging by the quality of Forgtmenot and their previous work in creating Souvalki GR, you can expect a viable force here.
Expect construction to commence sometime in late-winter.
