As we reported, M2M was closing on Third Avenue at 11th Street at the end of the business day yesterday.
This morning, the owners of the Asian market put up signage with an announcement about their new East Village location ...
As you can see, M2M will eventually be moving two blocks to the south ... to the long-empty spaces in the retail strip of NYU's Alumni Hall...
The corner space was home to Birdbath Bakery until the summer of 2014. Next door, Citi Habitats moved out in June 2014. No word how many of these storefronts M2M will take. There are two other empty slots that the Subway sandwich shop and Saint's Alp Teahouse previously rented.
As for the former M2M space, Wagamama, the London-based chain of Japanese restaurants, is coming here soon. Before M2M opened in 2002, the storefront housed an OMG jeans outlet.
For now you can get your M2M fix at their Waverly Place store.
Thanks to Steven for the photos!
