It’s day three of “The Purple Fig Death Watch.”
Then yesterday, despite all indications that the restaurant had ceased operating, a deal was listed for them on Groupon.
Today, that deal seems to be Groupon’s featured NYC offering and the restaurant’s phone has been reactivated… although no one is picking up.
Hard to tell what’s going on here. I called three times today and rather than get an automated response that the phone was disconnected, it just rang, and rang, and rang — no voicemail or answering machine (and no human).
The restaurant also appears to be active on OpenTable again. For the past few weeks they had been listed as being offline.
I didn’t have time to walk over there today, so with them not picking up their phone I can’t say for sure whether or not they’re open.
I’m still waiting for a response to an e-mail I sent them earlier in the week.
The watch continues… (h/t to MUW readers Becca & Adrian)
A lot of people have been asking me about what’s moving into the old H & H Bagels space at Broadway & 80th, as construction at the site is steadily progressing.
In any event, the space is slated to become a Verizon Wireless store.
Feel free to throw-up in your mouth just a little.
I haven’t been able to confirm an opening date, but when that day comes, the Verizon Wireless store currently located just north at 2268 Broadway (between 81st & 82nd) will close.
Two quick sorta/kinda opening links from earlier today if you missed them (if only because they have the word “open” in them):
Reservations are open for October Spa Week — four UWS spas are participating, but there are many more nearby.
The 50th New York Film Festival opens on September 28th at the UWS Film Society Of Lincoln Center — tickets are now on sale.
