A superette is a often defined as a “compact food market or convenience store.” To the year-old Dimes on Division Street, it’s a concept in the works for a new spinoff around the corner. They can finally stretch their legs…

As reported last week (and despite initial denials from ownership), Dimes is planning to expand its holdings at the expense of Cochinita Dos at 49 Canal. The so-called Superette is described in license application materials as a “fast casual concept” that focuses on grab-and-go service. Expect similar “New American” offerings at this location, which fits twenty tables and forty seats. Capacity is 48 patrons.

Full liquor privileges are sought; proposed hours of operation are 8am to 1am all days.

As for Cochinita Dos, many in the neighborhood had high hopes. The restaurant couldn’t deliver on quality or price, and is closing after six months. What did you think of the Mexican spot, and do you think a Dimes expansion is good for the area?
