Trendy Vegan Spot ‘by Chloe’ Expands with 3rd Location on Lafayette Street

Call it a case of clustering. One health food shop-slash-juicery opens at the corner of Spring and Lafayette Streets (namely, Tiny Empire and newcomer Joe & the Juice), and the bandwagoners follow suit. And with 16 Handles now out of the way, another can join the club. The latest entrant to this fray is “by Chloe,” a vegan restaurant that currently maintains a flagship at 185 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village.

Yesterday morning, a crew of workers was spotted attaching new signage to the storefront of 240 Lafayette Street. You’ll recall that the space has been dormant ever since 16 Handles failed out of business earlier this year. Guess the peeps at by Chloe had the funds to afford the alleged $30K in monthly rent for the real estate.

Build-out will probably commence imminently. Said teaser branding is likely to obstruct views of progress inside. Upon completion, expect the same trendy vegan offering here. House-made burgers, fresh pastas, seasonal soups, jices, vegan ice cream, and other baked goods.

This second location is not totally surprising; 28-year-old co-owners Chloe Coscarelli and Samantha Wasser told Forbes about plans for a “rapid expansion.” Lafayette is one of two new outposts planned for by Chloe. Both are expected to debut in the “first half of 2016.”
