Cadence reopens tonight in new 7th Street home

Cadence, the vegan soul-food restaurant, reopens tonight in its new larger space on Seventh Street. 

As previously reported, Chef Shenarri Freeman's popular spot moved on Seventh Street between Avenue A and First Avenue — from No. 122 to No. 111. 

The new space means Freeman and company can accommodate larger parties and serve about 60 diners at a time (vs. the dozen or so seats at No. 111).

Cadence opened in the spring of 2021 and drew praise from Pete Wells at the Times, who gave the place high marks.

The former Cadence space will be turned into a raw vegan restaurant, said Ravi DeRossi, the owner of the plant-based Overthrow Hospitality. The storefront next door, where Cadence was going to expand, will become a vegan wine and dessert bar.

Proletariat, another Overthrow property, is also on the move ... the craft beer bar left St. Mark's Place for a larger home at 21 E. Seventh St. between Second Avenue and Cooper Square. The opening date is pending.
