We've been waiting, waiting and waiting (since May 2008!) to see what will appear at the former tumor at Seventh Street just west of First Avenue...
...a construction worker at the scene in the spring said it will be "a restaurant or another bar." Hmmm.
Well, maybe some day. It appears that all that work gone into carving out the space and creating the tumor was just to prep it for lease.
According to the listing, the joint has 2,000 square feet, plus another 1,000 square feet in the basement. And: "Many busy cafes in the vicinity."
Feel free to leave your guess in the comments...smart money would have to be on some sort of ramen/noodle/yogurt place. (Or, if BaHa can do it, FroRam!)
