last reported awhile ago between 87/88th St. finally shows progress.
They have a name, signage, and an awning as of a couple week ago and continues to march closer to an opening date (Oct/Nov). After having been mired in a mountain of paperwork with the NYC DOB, they are hard at work once again renovating the premises with warm tones and dark wood trim throughout. Their website is up and running, and they do have take-out menus ready to go, posted outside.
Update: The owners have said they moved their opening date from 10/30 to Monday 11/3
