Cocoron is expanding like crazy. Already with two locations under its collective banner – plus the Goemon Curry offshoot – the fast casual Japanese eatery will soon add another. Located equidistant from the others on Delancey/Kenmare Street.

Subtle signage appeared behind the roll-down security gate of 16 Delancey over the weekend, announcing the forthcoming arrival of more soba. This outpost takes over from a restaurant supply company (i.e. The Furnishing Supplies) that went out of business a few months ago. Expect a beer-wine application before Community Board 3 in the coming months.

Cocoron debuted its Japanese comfort food at 61 Delancey six years ago and was an overnight hit. The company expanded across the Bowery at 37 Kenmare in 2012. Goemon Curry followed a couple years later at the same address.

It’s lights out for The Skinny bar on Orchard Street.

The Department of Health came down to 174 Orchard Street and ordered the establishment shut. The requisite yellow […]

First Rendering of the 14-Story Hotel Rising at Vacant Eldridge Street Lot

What the neighborhood doesn’t need is another large-scale hotel. But that’s precisely what’s happening at 79 Eldridge Street, where construction last week commenced on a new context-killing fourteen-story lodge. And now we have our first sight of what to expect from this long-vacant lot. It’s amazing how these illustrations completely gussy up neighborhoods to make […]

The Neon Lights of Sunshine Cinema Have Gone Dark

The Sunshine Cinema on East Houston is one step closer to its grave. While the brickwork of the building remains bathed in orange glow, the marquee lettering was not as lucky. As of this week, its token neon signage has gone dark. Shadows are now cast on the sidewalk below. Demolition is nigh. This latest action […]
