Are good thanks in order for Orchard Street?

Indeed, an Australian duo is presently eyeing 131 Orchard Street for a new casual cafe concept called Good Thanks.

The team seeks a beer-wine license for the venture, which will serve health-conscious food options alongside “quality coffee” in a “very relaxed” environment inspired by “Australian culture.”

“Our focus is to create a fun and vibrant atmosphere whilst serving the best nourishing and wholesome food options available,” co-owner Timothy Cottle tells us. “We will be running a high quality coffee program along with colorful smoothies, smoothie bowls, salads, and other wholesome cafe food options.”

“In the evening we will be focusing on natural wines and share plates … very relaxed.”

This north store of 131 Orchard has been dormant since Raw Material – formerly Black Treewas evicted in May 2017. (There had been turmoil between owner Sandy Dee Hall and landlord Samy Mahfar.) However, Jared Gordon and Jesse Wilson from West Village haunt, Analogue, attempted to open a cocktail bar called Greyhound a few months later, yet ultimately failed.
