The Pink Tea Cup Will Re-Open on June 2


Six months after the closure of the Grove Street location it had occupied for more than five decades, the Pink Tea Cup will re-open around the corner on Seventh Avenue South.

Back in January, Lawrence Page, proprietor of the Actors’ Playhouse, told our colleagues at Runnin’ Scared that he had rustled up $400,000 to buy the Pink Tea Cup “brand” and would re-open the soul food restaurant somewhere in the West Village, possibly by the end of February.

According to a press release he sent to Eater, Page will re-open the business on June 2 at 88 Seventh Avenue South. The menu will feature the same dishes from the previous location, as well as new ones like herb-crusted rack of lamb and crispy fried duck with pecan sauce. There will also be a full cocktail menu and a stage for performances, as well as extended hours; the 112-seat restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week.
