Here’s Your First Look at the New ‘Spring Natural’ Opening Next Week on Kenmare Street

Posted on: February 10th, 2016 at 5:10 am by

Spring Natural dropped the “street,” and is almost ready to reopen around the corner to 98 Kenmare Street. As previously reported, longtime owner-operator Rus Schoenholt was basically forced from their home of three decades thanks to rent gouging. Indeed, with an expiring lease on hand, the landlord reportedly more than quintupled the monthly rent.

Anyway, the year of renovations and prep work is winding down. Most notably, the one-story plywood shed was finally deposed from the facade of 98 Kenmare earlier this week. What we now see is blue brickwork and garbage bag concealed window. But here’s a quick peek behind the scenes. Definitely an upgraded look for the casual, health-conscious eatery.

The three-block shuffle results in a larger footprint for Spring Natural, which will reportedly boast more than 130 seats across two levels. Schoenholt informs us that the restaurant should open “late next week.” He hopes.

As for the now-former Spring Street digs, the entire dining room and bar is presently a wasteland. Fixtures and furnishings uprooted and carted away in auction a few weeks ago.

Spring Street Natural was founded in 1973 by Rustam Schoenholt, who has a proven track record of success over forty years. The first location was in SoHo, but moved to the famous 62 Spring location in 1985. That’s some crazy history.

Here’s the menu for the updated Spring Natural:
