New clothing and sushi spots are on their way to the Upper West Side.
“Boho-chic” clothing store Johnny Was is opening in the former Crocs store on Columbus between 72nd and 73rd Street. Check out the kinds of things they sell here.
Kureiji, a new Kosher sushi and poke restaurant, is planning to open at 506 Amsterdam Avenue (84th-85th), the former home of A Time for Children, according to Yeah That’s Kosher. “Poke is what I like to call deconstructed Hawaiian sushi, which has been a hot new trend over the last year. This will be the 3rd kosher restaurant in Manhattan to offer kosher poke options.” It’s hoping to open by the end of May. So far the menu posted online just says “Sushi, Poke, and Rolled Ice Cream.” Thanks to Iris and Stephen for the tips.
Noi Due is opening a new Kosher restaurant called Noi Due Carne next door, in the former home of Andanada at 141 West 69th Street. Thanks to Lisa for the tip.
Express Brows is opening in the former home of La Di Da gifts and accessories at 2410 Broadway (88th-89th). Thanks to Rachel for the photo.
Millennium Deli near the Southeast corner of 96th and Broadway has closed. “I have been living in this neighborhood for 40+ years and remember it being open since I was a kid… so sad,” wrote Paulie. Thanks to Paulie, Gale, Miles and Rob for the tips and photos.
Several people confirm to us that the former deli on 96th and West End Avenue is set to become a Mexican restaurant. We don’t know which restaurant yet. Thanks to Chris and others for the tips.
If we missed crediting you as a tipster, sorry and please feel free to remind us!
I’ve lived in the area for 62 years and millennium has been there right off Broadway.
Sad to see it go.
Millennium Deli had the best individually wrapped , middle eastern , Nougat at the register.
Bernheim and Schwartz should be replaced with a Westville location .
Good news! Westville has an online poll to help them decide where to locate their next branch. Go and vote for the UWS:
um, is this a joke? Because I would vote.
Does anyone know what is going to open on the North side west 72 between West End and Broadway ?
Looks like a bar ..
Do you mean where Duane Reade used to be? A day care is going in that spot. Unless there’s another empty store I haven’t noticed.
Tacuba Taco is opening on 67th and Amsterdam.
I’m not familiar with this Tacuba but always looking for something new. Is it a well known place with great food?
I live in the building that millennium deli is located, I have been out of town for a bit and was shocked to see it closed up on my return. Really sad to see that is gone. Does anyone know why it closed? Are any of the guys who worked there going to be working anywhere else in the neighborhood?
I’ve been going to the Millenium for years. A real neighborhood place. I guess we’ll get another:
(1) overpriced, mediocre upper west side restaurant;
(2) nail/eyebrow place (oh boy!);
(3) a phone store, or monster Spectrum even bigger, now
that it has such a monopoly on its terrible service
and high prices; or
(4) a Radio Shack (just kidding, thank god).
What a neighborhood. More boring by the minute.
not boring if you live about 96th street! we got shootings and all sorts of crimes here! come on over!
Your lease MUST be expiring soon, right? Then you can’t possibly complain anymore about having been tricked into living in a socioeconomically-mixed neighborhood. You can move to a much less scary place in Queens somewhere and stop being such a jerk about your neighbors.
Truth hurts, doesn’t it Sarah?
I would not eat at any place Noi Due occupies. There is plenty of information about how they handle their food if you google “noi due rats”.
No Thank yoU!
Another boutique of overpriced women’s clothes!
Just what my neighborhood needs!
just what we needed – another clothing store that sells $150 t-shirts that no one buys.
Sometimes I walk up columbus and count all of the customers in the “showroom” clothing stores that have sprung up. I’ve never needed more than one hand.
If the rumors about a Mexican restaurant opening at 96th/WEA are true, I am going to die from happiness.
