Goa Taco Departs LES; Delancey Locale will ‘Rise’ as Coffee Shop
The original location at 79 Delancey Street is now shuttered with brown paper in the windows.
“We decided it makes more sense to close the Delancey Street location after Smorgasburg ended and find a new tenant for that space,” co-founder Ryan Chadwick told us in an email. He owns Grey Lady next door, and initially teamed up with Duvaldi Marneweck on the concept.
Paratha tacos will give way to coffee.
The new occupant is none other than RISE Brewing Company, which has been operating a java counter in one form or another for the last couple years. First on Stanton Street, then most recently beside Dudley’s on Orchard Street.
This new spot at 79 Delancey is the flagship for the brand. Expect similar offerings, including its zero-calorie nitro cold brew on tap and full range of canned coffee.
“After having success at our first few pop-ups, it’s time RISE really plants a flag in New York by opening this flagship,” RISE co-founder Jarrett McGovern told us.
Meanwhile, Marneweck forges ahead with Goa Taco, holding down an outpost in Santa Barbara. And, we hear it might still return for Smorgasburg next summer.
