Last April, a Nicky's Vietnamese Sandwiches reopened on East Second Street just east of Avenue A.
Anyway, we haven't seen the place open in about a week. There aren't any "closed for renovations" signs up on the gate or any outgoing voice messages.
Perhaps they are just on a late-winter break?
To recap from a previous post!
Vicky's Vietnamese Sandwiches took over the Nicky's Vietnamese Sandwiches space nearly four years ago. Vicky's then closed at the end of November 2013.
The folks at the all-new Nicky's said that they are the original Nicky's.
HOWEVER. We later emailed the family who ran the original Nicky's (and who still have two restaurants in NYC). Here's what they had to say:
"No. They are not the original Nicky's. We only have two locations now. One in the Financial District and one in downtown Brooklyn."
A family member said that they are aware of the name use here, but that it was OK.
We never thought that the new Nicky's was as good as the old Nicky's. Maybe others thought the same.
