A quick follow-up about B&H Dairy's reopening ... as noted here, the popular lunch counter (circa 1938) known for its house-baked challah at 127 Second Ave. between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place is now open for takeout and deliveries as of this past Saturday.
In the first few days, they were cash only. Now, however, owners Ola and Fawzy Abdelwahed have announced that they're also accepting credit cards and other forms of mobile pay.
There was a lot of enthusiasm when B&H announced its return. Unfortunately, that hasn't translated into actual sales.
In an Instagram post about the credit cards, B&H noted:
We hope this makes ordering easier for everyone. Though we are open for take-out and delivery, we are not yet doing the volume of business needed to sustain being open and it is possible that we may temporarily close again next week.
Before the pandemic we served 200 customers a day. Now we serve 20-30 on a good day.
B&H is taking order by phone only at 212-505-8065 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Check their Instagram and Facebook pages for links to the menu and daily specials.
