Popeyes getting nearer to unleashing the chicken combo deals on 1st Avenue
Renovations continue inside (and out!) the long-vacant 39 First Ave. here between Second Street and Third Street.
As we noted back in November, a Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen was said to be the new tenant.
While there isn't any exterior signage at the moment, EVG reader Ace A Acekin did get a look inside ... and saw that workers have hoisted the sandwich combo deal menus behind the counter...
Popeyes emerged victorious last summer during the Chicken Sandwich Wars, simpler times when people cared about things like this.
No word on an East Village opening date for this Popeyes. There are more than 15 in the metropolitan area.
This retail space has sat empty for four-and-a-half years ... ever since NY Village Deli moved to a smaller storefront on the block.
