A new Kosher Asian restaurant called West Side Wok and Konata Sushi Bar is opening at 691 Amsterdam Avenue between 93rd and 94th Streets, the former home of Gan Asia. “We’ll be having the best Asian Cuisine on the Upper West Side, and…We’re Bringing Sushi Back!” the restaurant says on its Facebook page. It will serve Chinese, Thai and Japanese food. The soft opening is expected “soon.” Photo by Ilana R. Thanks also to Melissa for the tip.
Spirit Halloween opened a new pop-up store last week on Broadway and 100th Street, like it does every year. “Only 82 days till Halloween,” wrote Ken. (Now it’s more like 75, so better get ready!)
Upper West Side Mini Mart has opened on 72nd Street near Broadway in the former home of Grandaisy. The 24-hour market has an ATM that spits out $10s too. “Welcome to organic milk to eggs at all hours day and night!” wrote Rachel.
