Coming soon: Ando Patisserie on 10th Street; Unique Omakase on 1st Avenue

Signage is up now for Ando Patisserie at 214 E. 10th St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue. 

We're told this will be an Asian-inspired bakery that will also serve a variety of teas. There's an Instagram account here

Meanwhile, signage is up at 120 1/2 First Ave. between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place for Unique Omakase. 

Restaurant reps were scheduled to appear before CB3's SLA committee back on Monday for a liquor license. 

According to the questionnaire, Unique Omakase will have an 11-seat sushi bar with daily hours of noon to 11 p.m. The sushi chef here previously worked at Shinn East on Seventh Street between Avenue A and First Avenue. 

An outpost of the London-based Bubbleology Tea chain was the last tenant here, closing in late 2021 after nearly two years in service.

Previously, the building's landlord, convicted felon Steve Croman, didn't/wouldn't renew the lease of the International Bar ... which closed in November 2017 before merging with the Coal Yard down the block.

Weird...the Insta images go back to 2021 and some are stamped with a different restaurant's watermark. Ando was a Momofuku delivery place/later restaurant on 14th St. (RIP, delicious cheesesteak-with-hozon sandwich), so I wonder if there's a connection.
