Another Kosher restaurant and a Brazilian crepe spot are on their way.
BaZnGa, a new Kosher bakery and cafe, is opening at 426 Amsterdam Avenue (80th-81st), the former home of Poulette. A Craigslist posting for positions says the place will be “a vegetarian, kosher, nut-free establishment also serving gluten-free and vegan options.” Rabbi Yisrael Mayer Steinberg gave them the Kosher certificate. Thanks to Terry for the tip and photos.
TAP NYC is opening at 267 Columbus Avenue (72nd and 73rd Street). It will serve tapioca crepes, a Brazilian delicacy. “Similar to a wrap, a Brazilian tapioca TAP can be enjoyed with a savory or sweet filling, perfect for any meal or snack during your day,” the company’s website says. It was founded by two Brazilian entrepreneurs who had worked in the finance industry: “TAP NYC is the result of their passion for Tapioca Crepes and their desire to share this flavor not only with Americans but also with the huge international community living in New York City, including the homesick Brazilians.” Thanks to Casey for the tip and photo.
And Paul sent in the photo above of the new restaurant set to open on 96th and West End Avenue. Looks like they’ve got a small kitchen in back — it’s a small space so it was initially difficult to envision how a restaurant might fit there. It’s expected to serve Mexican food.
