With Lease Renewed, B&H Dairy Undergoes Makeover
Currently celebrating eighty-one years on the Lower East Side, B&H Dairy has a new look.
Last week, the restaurant took a three-day break in order to spruce things up a bit. Updated equipment, new floors, wainscoting, and a fresh coat of paint.
Of greater importance, however, is the official update (via Facebook) that a lease renewal on the space is executed. Meaning, the beloved luncheonette remains safe.
“We can’t say how long the lease is, but let’s just say we will be happily celebrating many, many anniversaries,” ownership relayed in an email.
B&H is finally ready to welcome customers with a new style. Appreciate to our landlord for renewing the lease. Thank You!
B&H Dairy is one of the oldest kosher (dairy) lunch counters in the Five Boroughs. Abie Bergson and Sol Hausman (B&H) opened the restaurant at 127 2nd Avenue in the spring of 1938, and the interior and menu has remained largely intact in that time. The business changed hands twice over the years, and has been in the possession of Fawzy Abdelwahed since 2003. He runs B&H with his wife Ola, whom he met when she worked at the three-years-shuttered Stage Diner across the street.
