Delancey Wine, the nine-year-old liquor store abutting Seward Park, is upgrading. The business will soon move three doors down, leaving behind a cramped retail nook.

Location of choice is one-half of the former Grand Tile Corp. warehouse, which was subdivided after the business relocated to Brooklyn at the end of last year. The State Liquor Authority notice to the community was taped to the gate of 35 Essex Street this week, all but confirming the news.

Delancey Wine opened at 41 Essex Street in late 2008. (Their arrival on Essex Street was one of the first posts on Bowery Boogie.) The store replaced the Glatt Kosher deli caterer, G&M, which occupied the space for decades.
