If you have kids and are looking for some free entertainment tomorrow (Sunday, 1/27), there are two live “Freaky Pets” shows at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at Amsterdam & 86th. The shows are musical and involve singing, dancing, juggling, comedy, audience participation, and more. As an added bonus, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf [...]
UPDATE 4/16/13: Looks like Birch will be opening on April 30 If you live anywhere near Columbus & 96th, you’ve probably seen the “Coming Soon” signage for Birch Coffee — it’s been been up since August. Finally got an update on this space and it looks like they’re planning to open in February.
Looks like Columbus Tavern (269 Columbus, between 72nd & 73rd) mysteriously closed yesterday. The restaurant, which replaced City Grill, opened just a little over a year ago. MUW reader Jamie e-mailed to report the closing. Per Jamie:
Posted back in December about an early-morning fire that ripped through Georgia’s Cafe & Bakery (2418 Broadway, at 89th) — they’ve been closed ever since. Staff had originally said they planned to reopen “soon” after the fire, but it looks like that won’t be the case, as “For Rent” signage went up yesterday.
Posted back in February that signage was still in place at the vacant Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf holiday pop-up shop at 2169 Broadway (between 76th & 77th). Based on conversations I’d had with various CBTL employees, I’d long speculated it was only a matter of time before the space re-opened as a full-service Coffee [...]
Mentioned last week that the Chase at 2139 Broadway (corner of 75th) has closed. As I wrote in that post, this is only interesting in that there is now vacant space on a prime Broadway corner and there is already construction taking place inside. And now we officially have our first rumor as to what’s [...]
Based on the number of people coming to MyUpperWest from keyword searches for “Jacob’s Pickles,” there’s been a ton of interest in this place (first mentioned all the way back in March when it was referred to as “Snack Bar”). It appears as though it’s now finally open.
Well, after months of rumors and waiting, it looks like the new Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at 532 Amsterdam (corner of 86th) is finally open.
UPDATE 11/12/12: The Smith Lincoln Center is opening on Tuesday, 11/13/12 Posted back in August there was a rumor that The Smith might be opening in the former Josephina space at 1900 Broadway (at 63rd). Thanks to a tip from a reader, that rumor got a little stronger in October. It appears to be a [...]

Another day, another Upper West Side Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf update (with plenty of non-Coffee Bean stuff too). Thanks to MUW reader Chari’s photo above, we now have some concrete evidence they plan to open a location at 79th & Columbus.
UPDATE 12/1: Coffee Bean Location At 392 Columbus (@ 79th) Appears Confirmed The Upper West Side Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf saga continues… Today, a CBTL pop-up shop opened at 2169 Broadway (between 76th & 77th), but with a catch: it’s not really a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
Mentioned last week that the location for the new Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf slated for the Upper West Side was outed. There was a little confusion at the time because despite some reports saying CB & TL was coming to 79th & Columbus, I had multiple seemingly-credible sources telling CB & TL going to [...]
Looks like the mystery location for the new Upper West Side Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf mentioned in September has been outed. I meant to take a picture of it today so I wouldn’t have to use this logo shot, but I forgot that it gets dark so damn early now.
