Rumor: Tompkins Square Bagels possibly opening a 2nd East Village location on 2nd Avenue
[EVG photo from January]
Open Pantry, the 45-year-old coffee shop/grocery at 184 Second Ave., closed for good at the end of January. The proprietors, who also own the building here between East 11th Street and East 12th Street, have had the storefront on the rental market these past few months.
Now comes word, via the rumor mill, that Tompkins Square Bagels is looking to open a second East Village shop at this location.
We'll update when/if we hear back from TSB owner Christopher Pugliese.
Tompkins Square Bagels opened on Avenue A near East 10th Street in December 2011.
