East 2nd Street is home again to a 'Nicky's Vietnamese Sandwiches'
EVG regular RyanAvenueA pointed out that a Nicky's Vietnamese Sandwiches just reopened on East Second Street east of Avenue A.
So to quickly recap the recent history here:
Vicky's Vietnamese Sandwiches took over the Nicky's Vietnamese Sandwiches space on East Second Street nearly three years ago. Vicky's then closed at the end of November.
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.
On closer inspection, the menu for the new Nicky's looks similar to Vicky's…
The new Nicky's!
