There have been a few twists and turns lately at local Food and Drink establishments on 45th. Here is an Editor’s Choice article with some personal observations. Let’s run them down:
Grand Central Bakery
I was surprised last week to see the small sign: Closed on Monday and Tuesdays in September due to staffing. Subject to change. Is there a secret general labor strike going on? Anyway, I look forward to their re-opening back everyday.
In the ‘old’ Starbucks location is a sign for a new tea shop: Young Tea. Can’t wait.
This editor’s pick of some of the restaurants that opened up outdoor dining in parking spots outside their shops:
With great ramen and Japanese food.
Great Trinidadian cuisine comes outdoors!
The Octopus Bar with their Salty Shack
Great sandwiches, drinks and treats. Always a fun atmosphere.
Outside of Bottleworks is a new mural. Even though there is the word “Merlot” on it, that is actually one of four signatures of the four artists who painted it. Look for a further mural addition that wraps around to the front of the shop.
