Luke’s Lobster is expanding again, this time in a northwesterly direction: Per Diner’s Journal, the shop is moving to a prime location at 426 Amsterdam Avenue, at West 80th Street. As with their East Village location, they’ll be a handful of blocks from fellow crustacean-pusher Mermaid Inn, and will be adding a fish chowder and spicy crab and sweet potato bisque to their menu.
Over in Brooklyn, Crop to Cup is abandoning its Atlantic Avenue digs for the greener pastures of Gowanus. Per Carroll Gardens Patch, the coffee/food/antiques shop is moving to a bigger space on 13th Street and Third Avenue. Thanks to the extra space, it will be able to hold demos, classes, and coffee cuppings. Crop to Cup’s new home is expected to open next month.
