If you’re used to just drinking chamomile, it might be time to try a few new flavors, or perhaps a couple hundred new flavors.

Shiny Tea New York, which serves bubble tea, has opened at 2667 Broadway between 101 & 102nd Street.
Amsterdam-based fashion company Scotch & Soda is opening a new store at 416 Columbus Avenue on the southwest corner of 80th Street in Manhattan, according to FashionMag.com.
SoupStop, at 517 Columbus between 85th and 86th, has closed. It was connected to Jackson Hole Burgers next door, and the note on the window announcing the closure was the same as the one on Jackson Hole. Trish Anderton, who sent the tip, noted that there are “not many lunches under $10 in the West 80’s anymore.”
Filicori Zecchini on 95th Street and Broadway has morphed into Espresso Matto. This may simply be a rebranding because the Filicori on East 46th Street is also now an Espresso Matto. The store has been offering everything for $2 lately — might not be the best sign for a high-end coffee shop. Thanks to Alan for the photo. Update: a reader points out that Olga Evglevska, a manager for Filicori, was killed while biking in TriBeCa earlier this month. It’s not clear if that has anything to do with the change.
D’Agostino is reportedly looking to sell its New York stores. The location on 110th and Broadway already closed. Several tipsters said the shelves at the store on 91st and Columbus have been increasingly bare, but an employee insisted a little over a week ago that it was just because of a delayed shipment. Still, the shelves are looking bare again this week.
