Our tipster Debra was throwing some old matchbooks out when she decided to line them up and snap a photo. “Remember these?” she wrote in an email to us. Many are gone, though others like Cafe Lalo are still kicking. Do they bring back any memories for anyone else?
We hadn’t heard of “West Side Storey” before. The Times called it a “restaurant-bakery-delicatessen at 95th Street and Columbus Avenue…With everything from egg cream to espresso, West Side Storey is the only establishment within a six‐block radius offering breakfasts and a coffee‐shop menu, as well as more ambitious dinner fare by a Cordon Bleu trained chef, Abdou Jabrame.” Sounds amazing!
