American Dream Gourmet Deli coming to 14th Street

Signage is up for the new business opening soon at 247 E. 14th St. — American Dream Gourmet Deli.

The deli, just west of Second Avenue, will be open 24/7, and selling deli-like items such as sandwiches. They'll also be going head to head with 7-Eleven, which is several storefronts away along IHOP Way.

The deli takes over the space from the 5-year-old T-swirl Crêpe, which didn't reopen after the COVID-19 PAUSE.

Thanks to Pinch for the tip!

A locksmith for this retail space on 10th Street

From the EVG tipline... a report that a locksmith opened last week at 241 E. 10th St. just west of First Avenue.

The small space was until December 2019 home to United Copy & Print.

A Hollywood print shop for 7th Street

An EVG reader noted the arrival today of signage for a new business coming to Seventh Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue — a print shop... don't know anything else about the place at this time, such as if it is a new business or one that relocated.

The previous tenant at No. 76 was the Jasna Hair Studio.

Never mind! This is just a set dressing for the new David Simon series filming on the block today...

Agavi Juice now open on East 7th Street

The juice bar opened Monday at 72 East Seventh St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue…

They are offering an array of juices, smoothies, protein shakes and acai bowls …

And here's a closeup of the menu via Yelp

The address was home until last fall to Fab 208, the clothing boutique that closed after 23 years on the block. (At this address and across the street.)

Fab 208 owners Jo and Alan told Racked the following:

"We just no longer see retail in the [East Village] as a business model worth sticking with. We are not bitter about how the hood has changed but it has lost all sense of itself and has no community left to support independent stores like ours."

As for Fab 208, they will be opening a store soon in Jacksonville, Fla.

The Cellphone Doctor is (almost) in on Avenue C

Just noting the pending arrival of a new business on Avenue C between East Sixth Street and East Seventh Street... at the empty storefronts owned by the NYCHA... where the images from Chico's mural here on the roll down gates have nearly vanished...

Comings and goings on Second Avenue

Something called Health Mart Pharmacy is opening at the former UPS Store near 11th Street...

... and Crembebe, a boutique specializing in kid's fashions near Fourth Street, has closed...

What's new on Avenue C?

Bao 111 at 111 Avenue C closed up shop at the end of February because of escalating rents...(Get this: the owner planned to move to the west side because it was less expensive.)

Anyway, the new owners are renovating the space, with hopes of opening by the end of the summer. They were very cordial, and told me it will be a restaurant featuring French-Carribbean fare.

Meanwhile, as the sign reads, Barnyard is open (last Tuesday was its first day, in fact), a high-end cheese and meat shop at 149 Avenue C just north of Ninth Street.

Distrubing trend of the day: Golf clubs on the bus

My bus passes through the heart of the newish condo country on the LES. And, with greater frequency this summer, I see more young sporty sports getting on the bus Friday mornings toting golf clubs. Didn't see this many even, say, two years ago. Either these fellows are a year or two away from car-service privileges at the firm or gratuitous use of such car services have been chopped from the company budget. Whatever. Just don't take up three seats guys, OK?

What's happening here?

Construction continues in the front of 83 E. 7th St. near First Avenue. But never when I happen to be around. Otherwise I'd ask what's going on...Did I miss some news that this is going be be a cafe? Restaurant? Etc.?

Questions of the day

Why is this newish spa on First Avenue and 2nd Street called Water Front? (The East River isn't exactly that close.)

Meanwhile, I saw this sign go up Tuesday night on St. Mark's Place.

Does the neighborhood really need another Asian spa? Seems as if several other new spas have opened recently...
