4.5 years later: A tenant for the former Noho Star space on Bleecker and Lafayette

There's finally a retail tenant for 330 Lafayette on the SW corner of Bleecker ... the storefront has been vacant since the end of 2017.

Slowear, the Italian clothing and accessories brand, opened its second NYC location here last week. 

Per the Slowear Instagram account: "The store hosts the latest generation technologies, the finest selection of garments and accessories for the men's wardrobe and a cosmetic area."
Noho Star, the low-key restaurant that attracted a few bold-faced names (Wallace Shawn! Lauren Hutton!), closed in this space on New Year's Eve 2017 after 32 years in business.

Slowear isn't the only luxury line to replace a neighborhood spot on the block. Bleecker Street Bar wasn't offered a lease extension after 30 years at Bleecker and Crosby. The bar closed in August 2020, though they will return around the corner on Broadway this fall.

In its place...  the New York flagship store for Sabah opened back in the spring and offers high-end leather Turkish slippers and other accessories...

I still miss Noho Star and their classic Caesar salad… and I sat next to and chatted with Lauren Hutton on a few occasions

I too miss Noho Star and their legendary Caesar salad. Such a great neighborhood restaurant. Nothing like it left in all of downtown.

I worked there for a little while in 2005/2006. Lauren was great. I'm sad the interior is gone and the window frames.
