The worst kept secret on the Lower East Side is now official. Earlier this week, the Pickle Guys hoisted updated signage at its new location just across the street. The announcement now straddles the marquee of 357 Grand Street. Behind the plywood shed, meanwhile, work is seemingly nearing completion on the forthcoming headquarters. Walls are tiled […]

The Pickle Guys will Start a Delivery Service for its Brooklyn Customers

Posted December 1, 2016 at 5:00 am

Earlier this month, the Pickle Guys ended its seven-year tenure in Brooklyn. This decision to divest was directly connected to the new headquarters currently under construction at 357 Grand Street. With a much larger Manhattan location, a presence in Midwood apparently made less sense. Recognizing that these outer-borough customers still demand the dill, so to […]

The three-block stretch of Orchard Street between Delancey and East Houston was jammed from noon to 5pm. So it wasn’t easy to purchase and/or consume any pickled goodness, unless patience for long lines is […]

After 14 Years on Essex, Pickle Guys is Moving Across the Street

Posted April 21, 2016 at 5:00 am

Here’s a bitter herb for your Passover. Management of the Seward Park Co-op circulated a letter this week notifying residents that the Pickle Guys is moving from its unique below-grade location on Essex Street. Sad. Much of the great experience here is the controlled chaos of descending into pickle barrels via narrow corridor. Nevertheless, Pickle […]

We wait all year for this. Starting this Sunday, the Pickle Guys will start grinding horseradish from freshly peeled roots.
