A deli for the former deli at the long-vacant storefront at 118 1st Ave.
A quick note from the EVG tipline... a deli looks to be the new tenant for the long-vacant NE corner space at 118 First Ave. at Seventh Street. (H/T Upper West Sider!)
Paperwork filed for this address with the state lists the corporation name as East 7th Deli & Cafe Corp. (The storefront is no longer on the rental market.)
No. 118 First Ave. had been vacant since Golden Food Market closed here in the summer of 2017 after 35 years in business. Before their lease wasn't renewed, an LLC with a West 11th Street address bought the building in the spring of 2017 for $5.8 million, per public records.
Golden Food Market owner Ali Fardos now runs East Village Organic a few storefronts away.
A tapas-wine bar was in the works for No. 118 in April 2018, but those plans never materialized.
