Exciting new business finally opens on East 14th Street


[Photo by @fnytv]

Hey, that Wells Fargo is now open on East 14th Street near Fourth Avenue... at the site of the mostly awful but serviceable (mostly!) Cafe Amore's Pizza Restaurant...

And is this where the Tad's Steak's was before the pizzeria...?

Tad's steak it was I believe. Right next to Luchow's

Yes, that was the site of Tad's. RIP to it and that great red-flocked wallpaper it had.

The Royal Red Wallpaper had a velvet quality and a texture - must've been impossible to clean - why Tads was such a dump.

Oh fantastic! I was just saying what we needed on the block was another bank! Oh joy!

@Anon 10:54 - that is what flocked wallpaper is - it's part paper, part cut velvet. Very popular in Victorian parlors and bordellos, and yes, a real dust-catcher. But I prefer to think of Tad's not as a dump, but as a faded dowager, who despite not being in the best of shape was ever friendly and welcoming. I still remember how nice the smiling guys behind the counter always were.
