Upper West Siders will soon get three new places where we can satisfy our various indulgences.
1. Birch Coffee: A sustainability-minded coffee shop is set to open in about a week at 750 Columbus Avenue, at 97th street. Birch, which also has locations in the Flatiron district and the West Village, will deliver a 64-ounce jug of iced coffee to your apartment or office. The Times says that at the UWS location “chef Jehangir Mehta will consult on devising American small plates to accompany beer served on draft and by the bottle.” Birch has been preparing to open for a very long time. We first wrote about them in August.
2. Juice Generation: A new branch of the juice chain is set to open on Broadway between 85th and 86h street next to Jeffrey Stein Salon. The company promises to open “very soon.” Juice Generation has another location on 72nd street. Thanks to Angie for the tip and photo.
3. O O Wonder Frozen Yogurt: A new froyo spot is set to open in April at 250 Columbus Avenue, the former home of short-lived sandwich spot Paninoteca. From the photo on their twitter page (below), it appears to be another serve-yourself spot, a la 16 Handles.
