Bad news from Grub Street. Daniel Maurer reports that the building housing Cup and Saucer Luncheonette, the old timer on Canal and Eldridge, is now for sale.
One of the owners of the diner, which has been in existence for 71 years, tells Maurer that he's optimistic that they'll work out a deal to stay. We hope so. We need more places like Cup and Saucer in these manly-man, artisanal days of NYC dining.
Doesn't seem as if much else is going on in the building aside from the Cup and Saucer...
In any event, this isn't the first time that we thought that the Cup and Saucer might be in trouble.
