Sky High with the Eldridge Street Synagogue ‘Oculus’ Window Restoration [PHOTOS]

Posted March 13, 2017 at 9:45 am

The sky-high stained-glass window piercing the star-stamped ceiling of the Eldridge Street Synagogue is undergoing a full restoration. We’re told that the decorative glass of the so-called “Oculus” – an original relic dating back to 1887 – had dislodged from its lead frame that kept it in place all these years. Each section was then […]

‘Lena Coffee’ Spinoff will Open at Gentrified 135 Eldridge Street 

Posted March 10, 2017 at 5:00 am

Now that 135 Eldridge Street is sufficiently upscaled (nay, gentrified), the mess of scaffolding and construction materials is gone from the block. In its place, posters advertising the remodeled retail units for suitors more befitting the “new” Lower East Side. And the first taker is here. In due course, the Greenwich Village-based Lena Coffee will […]

The Flower Shop Nightspot Debuts on Eldridge Street

Posted March 3, 2017 at 5:09 am

If the nebulous “elevated gastropub” is your thing, then The Flower Shop is for you. The bi-level club-steraunt just opened on Eldridge Street this week. The eatery, helmed by chef Michael Hamilton, hosts dinner service on the first floor, while the “kids” can play in the basement “rec room” with its TVs, billiards, and a “sunken […]

Prosperity Dumpling Replacement ‘East Dumpling’ is Finally Open on Eldridge Street

The former home of Prosperity Dumpling is finally delivering on its promise. Ever since April 2016, 46 Eldridge Street has been teasing the arrival of East Dumpling with an eye-catching green canopy.

Yet the space is already accounted for. Ghost was operated by the Woodward Gallery directly across the street, and now we learn that they’re not yet done with the […]

Four Years on, ‘Ghost’ Cocktail Bar No Longer Haunts Eldridge Street

Posted August 22, 2016 at 5:00 am

The artsy cocktail bar and lounge, Ghost on Eldridge, disappeared from its namesake street earlier this month. A note on its social media platforms says only, “gone fishing, catch you in the fall.” That’s not the full story, though; a return seems unlikely. The Woodward Gallery across the way opened Ghost at 132 Eldridge Street in March […]

Word of the new contender arrives more than three months after the longtime bar and performance venue called it quits. Bilowich, the current head doorman at 1Oak (the Butter Group), […]
