Signage is up now for Roasted NYC, a coffee shop for 128 Second Ave. between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place.
Here's what to expect via the shop's Instagram account: " ... we will be providing you with a real coffee experience, not a corner store coffee. Elegant incredibly flavored coffee with latte art, pour overs and some of your finest roasts."
Roasted NYC takes over the space from the weed-related NYC Kind Cafe ... which took over for the short-lived Paint Puff "N" Peace last year.
Coffee seems to be a hot item around here now. Poetica Coffee opened on the SW corner of Second Avenue and St. Mark's Place in April. Kuppi Coffee Company is in the works for 82 St. Mark's Place just west of First Avenue. And mainstay Porto Rico Importing Co. is right around the corner on St. Mark's Place. (OK, and MUD is near enough on Ninth Street near Second Avenue.)
