A Sandwich Shop for Lower Orchard Street


Not only is lower Orchard Street getting a “food lifestyle company” cum locavore British restaurant, it’s also about to get a sandwich shop. Bowery Boogie reports that the as-yet-unnamed establishment will open at 35 Orchard in a few weeks’ time. The storefront’s previous tenant was a bike shop; this new incarnation will feature a large interior mural and Dutch doors. Given the efforts of real estate developers to turn lower Orchard into a playground for the disposably-incomed, this new activity isn’t entirely unexpected; with Clandestino and Les Enfants Terrible right around the corner on Canal Street, this stretch could be poised for the same kind of dining development that defines Orchard Street two blocks north, between Broome and Grand streets.
