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.
