Down under the Manhattan Bridge overpass, and across from the Coleman skatepark, a new cafe just debuted. It’s the first business of its kind at the eastern terminus of Monroe Street. Little Chair is now seated.

As previously reported, the ownership behind Forgtmenot and Kiki’s – two Division Street businesses that have become locals for the locals – is running the show here at Little Chair. In fact, the new establishment seems to channel a similar aesthetic as its sister ventures, taking on a living room vibe with plenty of scattered tchotchkes. Decor is classic, boasting an exposed look with checkered floors, living room couch, and an old organ.

Little Chair serves La Colombe brew and teas alongside a bite-sized menu consisting of, among other things, sandwiches, salads, spinach pie, grilled cheese, ham and cheese, croissants, and other baked goods (soft-serve ice cream coming soon). Everything is under $10.

Below is a snapshot of the full offering:

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 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.
