EaterWire: 2nd Ave. Deli Set for 12/17; Lines Around Block at Senor Pollo Opening, Much More!!

New, 1 comment

MURRAY HILL—The new incarnation of the 2nd Avenue Deli—and its interior revealed by Eater earlier this week (right)—is slated to open to the public on Monday, December 17. This news per a press release sent along by the folks over at Rubenstein. Color: "The deli’s opening will be celebrated with a ceremonial salami cutting of 'nickel shtikel' links on Monday, December 17, 2007 at 11 a.m." Live Eater coverage guaranteed. [EaterWire Inbox]

EAST VILLAGE—Until Midtown Lunch launches its downtown edition, we'll have to fill the void. Two tipster reports: a) 9:38am: "Senor Pollo is scheduled to have their grand opening this afternoon at the corner of 13th and 1st. They’ve been handing out free lunch postcards, that are good for one-quarter roasted chicken and two sides for lunch today only"; b) 1:13pm (via phone): "Senor Pollo is open, they're giving away free food, and the neighborhood has responded by lining up around the block." Anyone got pics? [EaterWire Inbox/EaterWire Mobile]

GOWANUS—Per Food of the Future, this wacky rumor: "according to a couple of sources, 7th street between 2nd and 3rd aves will soon be home to a new musical venue run by the good folks at union hall. given the problems that i've heard about with their current location - i.e. noise complaints, it makes sense to open something in a location where noise is not an issue." And what better place that a deserted, industrial block near the Gowanus Canal? [Food of the Future]

RIVERDALE—So there's this dude, a commercial real estate broker oddly enough, who decided that what Riverdale really needs is its own Starbucks. He has succeeded in his task. So, today's question: does this make him a hero or a villain? Racked is polling its readership, and the results so far—eh, go vote and see for yourself. [Racked]
