Updated 5 p.m. The post has been updated to reflect a new opening date — Tuesday, Nov. 9. The Wild Son outpost at 132 First Ave. will be closed starting tomorrow for a minor refresh.
Starting Tuesday (Nov. 9), the Wild Son will be open in its new outpost at 130 First Ave. — directly next door from its current spot on the SE corner of St. Mark's Place.
As previously reported, the restaurant is opening a lunch counter at No. 130 with a daytime breakfast and lunch service.
In late September, Robert Ceraso, the cafe's co-owner, told us they were extending the daytime service currently only offered on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to all weekdays.
The new Wild Son space will also feature an updated menu (find it here), which features some "greatest hits," like the Good Morning Sunshine and the Grandma Anna egg sandwiches, plus a few other sandwiches, salads ... along with coffee, teas and juices.
The lunch counter seats 10 patrons, with additional room outside. Hours: Tuesday-Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
And what will become of the corner space where the Wild Son is now?
According to a rep for Endless Hospitality, who also operate EV spots the Wayland, Goodnight Sonny and Pop’s Eat Rite, 132 First Ave. will close for a few weeks and reopen as a cocktail bar/restaurant called Bar Lula, which "will take inspiration from modern French bistros and the bold flavors, colors, and culinary traditions of Mexico."
The Wild Son relocated to the East Village from Little West 12th Street in May 2020.
