The Original Cocoron will Reopen on Delancey Street as Reservation-Only ‘Shabu Shabu Macoron’

Posted on: May 23rd, 2017 at 9:33 am by

The new Cocoron at 16 Delancey Street is not so much an addition, but replacement for the original location. It debuted at the end of February, and offers a much larger dining experience for patrons. There are fifty seats, and the menu is apparently a hybrid of the two established locations (the other being Goemon Curry on Kenmare).

In the meantime, plans are already underway for the tiny space at 61 Delancey Street. Where it all started seven years ago. The gates have been shuttered for the last couple months while ownership re-tools the restaurant. Upon reopening, it’ll be a completely different concept. Something a bit more upscale, in fact.

Meet Shabu Shabu Macoron.

“We’re gonna make Shabu Shabu (kinda hot pot stuff) restaurant there,” ownership tells us. “It’s only reservations, around 10 seats, only course menu with high quality Japanese premium beef.”

Moreover, the computer printout on the door notes that the newcomer offers “real foods” that “warm your heart.”

Shabu Shabu Macoron should open in the coming days.
