Teany to Reopen Within a Week or So, Plot Cafe Empire


When a fire struck Teany last June, word was that the diminutive Lower East Side tea shop and vegetarian-friendly cafe would open again in a few weeks. Eight months later, Feast reports that the Moby-backed spot is finally getting ready to reopen its doors.

Teany is expected to start serving again in 7-10 days, says partner Naimm Okdamini, and the interior will look much like it did before the fire. Okdamini also revealed plans to “open actual brick and mortar locations in ‘any city that will appreciate vegan cooking,’ ” and is specifically targeting Vermont, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
