I’ve been getting a ton of keyword searches for Jacob’s Pickles, the restaurant slated for 509 Amsterdam (between 84th & 85th) that’s been on the verge of opening for the past two months (previous coverage here, here, and here).
It’s still not open yet, but I did here from a PR person affiliated with Jacob’s and they’re getting closer.
Elizabeth wrote in to say “it’s been a busy few weeks for [Jacob] as he gears up for the opening, which is slated for the end of November, or thereabouts… We’ve passed our fire inspection and got all the necessary permits!”
Staff training was slated to begin this week, so hopefully they’ll be able to hit their goal of opening by the end of the month. I’ll have more information about menus and the restaurant’s concept as the opening gets closer.
Looks like the Crumbs Bake Shop at 2814 Broadway (between 108th & 109th) finally opened its doors today, joining the recently opened Crumbs on Broadway & 92nd.
The Columbia Spectator reported last night that the store would open at 8:00 am this morning. It didn’t take them long to sample the goods, as they already posted a review (with photos) earlier this evening. (Thanks also to @ashirak for tweeting in the opening)
Following up on last week’s post about the new Patagonia Tin Shed at 2625 Broadway (near 100th) — they’re having their official grand opening celebration tomorrow (Friday). Per their Facebook page, they’ll be offering food, drinks, giveaways, live music, and a film screening, all starting at 6:30 pm.
In that same post from last week about the Tin Shed, there was also a note about Global Table opening a new outpost at 471 Amsterdam, between 82nd & 83rd. The New York Times had reported the store was opening last Friday, but MUW tipster Kevin sent in this photo earlier today — looks like they got delayed a bit. (That’s also Kevin’s photo of Jacob’s Pickles at the top of this post).
