An EVG reader has noted a steady stream of people coming in and out of the former Dirt Candy space on East Ninth Street this week. Paper still covers the windows on the storefront between Avenue A and First Avenue.
As we first reported on April 28, a menu for a jokey place called Chickens arrived in the window (Chicken Dip with Chicken Chips!)...

... later we heard that this will be a quick-serve restaurant serving vegetarian sandwiches. Eater confirmed yesterday that Del Posto pastry chef Brooks Headley is opening Superiority Burger, specializing in veggie burgers and other vegetarian fare.
Headley's creations have been attracting lines wherever he has sold them, including Christmas Day from the Dirt Candy location.
The space is expected to open to the public very soon. As soon as today maybe.
Dirt Candy closed here at the end of last August to move to a larger space on Allen Street.
The space is now open as of tonight.
