New food bowls are here, but a reliable spot for a beer has disappeared.
Mighty Bowl, an Asian fast-casual restaurant chain, has opened in the spot formerly occupied by Subway at 321 Amsterdam Avenue between 75th and 76th Streets. Mighty Bowl serves up a variety of Asian bowls, allowing people to choose from a variety of options or make their own bowl. The specials are listed on a sandwich board outside the restaurant. Here’s the menu. Thanks to Dan, Michelle and Joeanna for the tips.
On Tap at Whole Foods Columbus Circle closed at the end of October 31. It was a bar with craft beers and food, and one of the better spots to have a beer and watch sports while taking care of children, in our humble opinion. Our tipster Christopher Canfield says he heard from staff that the space will be replaced by an Amazon Prime Now staging area. The company has not responded to our request for comment.
Jaros Pharmacy at 25 Central Park West (62nd) was closed by the marshals, so the landlord has taken possession. “I just left the doctor after oral surgery, had my medications sent to Jaros, and GREAT, no antibiotic or pain medication for me until the doctor opens tomorrow and can send to Duane Reade,” our tipster wrote. He was frustrated that the pharmacy didn’t tell doctors to not send medications there, and urges other West Siders to alert their doctors so as not to end up in the same predicament.
A children’s gym called My Gym has signed a 3,262-square-foot lease at 207 West 79th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. “The children’s fitness brand offers early physical education and pre-gymnastics classes as well as birthday parties for children ages six weeks to 10 years,” a press release said. (Children’s fitness, is that a thing now?) “Boasting state-of-the-art facilities, My Gym aims to enhance children’s development through games, music, exercise, sports, gymnastics, puppets and unique rides.” My Gym has three other locations in Manhattan. They expect to “take occupancy” on October 1.
La Sirene at 416 Amsterdam Avenue (West 80th Street) just began serving breakfast starting at 8 a.m. “They have homemade croissants. Food is authentic and delicious!!” wrote Lynn, who seems to be a fan. La Sirene is one of the few restaurants in the neighborhood that accepts Bitcoin. How many Bitcoin for a fresh croissant?
