Several readers have noted that Bowery Coffee opens today at 87 E. Houston just west of the Bowery. (BoweryBoogie noted this last week.) Boogie reports that the decor can be described as "rustic Americana." While there are a few tables, it's more of a to-go place.
Anyway, if you try it, then please let us know what you think. Of the coffee.
BB has more on the owner here.
