I take it you don't enjoy the cafe culture that many European cities enjoy. Usually it's considered a plus for a city.

The flood of incredible coffee in 2015 was one of the best things that's ever happened to me.

For what it's worth, 9Bar has the best overall coffee, Prato has the best coffee, sandwich, and sit experience, and Seven Sheep has the coolest food offerings. That croissant with vegetable thing is so damn good.

Looks like the rumor mill was right with Latin Lounge, Hippie - looks a lot nicer now, tacky blue lights aside. Lamp Post now has a sign for Batata Cafe, but I can't find any info on it aside from a location by the same name in Brooklyn.

Word in the neighborhood is that the Latin Lounge is trying to class up their act a bit and reopen -- the renovations are pretty nice and putting in a window is a good move.

The old Lamp Post space is, as I understand it, supposed to be a Brazilian or Brazilian fusion spot of sorts, BYOB.

Ha, this thread is about 90% questions and 10% answers.

Does anybody have any intel on the ground floor commercial space at the "Vito A Lofts" on Columbus just west of Jersey Ave? It's been outfitted for some sort of commercial or retail operation.

By the way, the building actually looks like a cool building, I just don't know if I could get over telling people that I live in the "Vito A. Lofts", LOL.

Well, it can't be worse than the deli that used to be in that space.


oh god that deli. with Shouty McRageRoid behind the counter, and his yappy dog.

I wonder if the new place would consider doing breakfast. I'd be there every morning if they could perfect an egg n' cheese. (or hell, a hamburger, egg n' cheese, if they must stick to the theme.)

That is actually great news.

It seems like for the last ten years every time I take WTC the entry/exiting is worse than it was last time. Hopefully some time this century there's an underground transfer to the ACE again.

the space on first street at erie, right across from torico??? I peaked in one morning when the back door was open, i could see a bar.. they just layed tiles down on the front stoop. anybody have any more information than that? (sorry if it's already been discussed, i didn't see it)


Spoke to a guy a few weeks back who was working on it, and he said burger joint. I got to peek inside, it's this beautiful wooden counter. Maybe it'll be more of a pick up spot instead of restaurant, like Left Bank?


take-out burger joint. they really classed-up that storefront. I hope they succeed, if only as a reward for making that corner so much prettier than it was when it housed an endless succession of lackluster delis.


Walked past this place this morning - they now have a hamburger sign hanging out the front. Quite understated, not at all garish.

While I'm at it, one of the "no photos!" gestapo at WTC PATH was telling a commuter this morning that the new southern exits will be opening next week. Anyone who works south of WTC will probably shave about five minutes off their commute by exiting on Liberty and Church rather than schlepping up to Vesey and then backtracking down Greenwich.

I too was surprised at the size of that space. the ceiling height makes it appear cavernous. it's easily about 30% higher than its neighbors on either side.


I thought it was supposed to be another gym. If that's still the case then there may be less for rent than what one sees. For nostalgic reasons I hope it becomes a restaurant called Mike, Where Are the Plungers, Mike.

It's being restored (it's protected) in order to be used as a Public Storage location. There's a bit of a fight from the other self-storage companies, as they believe that it's supposed to be used only as apartments, but the restoration is going forward regardless, it seems.

I mean, after you've opened multiple restaurants in the regulatory hellhole that is NYC, I'd assume that JC was comparatively a walk in the park for those guys.

More likely, the fact that they are on TV played a role in them getting star treatment and avoiding the delays...


We seldom agree on much, but on this I think you are 100% correct. Regardless, it is such a shame. Lots of people cobble together life savings and family loans to take a chance on a business or restaurant, only to run into the nightmare of endless inspections and the other shenanigans of the JC Buildings Department.

they basically admitted as much, at least as far as the apartment renovations go.

the cousin who lives upstairs was profiled about his fancy apartment, and mentions in the article that the building inspector laughed at his plans to put a shipping container on the roof.

hey, guess what's on the roof!
