New Cafe, Juice Bar & Sandwich Shop With Outdoor Seating Coming To Roosevelt Island's Main Street - Lease Signed Says Hudson Related

We worried it might not ever happen again, but we were wrong.

Main Street Retail Master Leaseholder Hudson Related reports that a new lease has been signed for the long empty space at 503 Main Street.

The new tenant will operate a Cafe/Juice Bar/Sandwich Shop. No cooking will be allowed in the premises due to the Rivercross Building denying permission.

There will be outdoor seating but the store wall facing Rivercross lawn will remain.

Some residents had hoped that the wall could be replaced by windows opening up to the Rivercross lawn.

The new Cafe, Juice Bar & Sandwich Shop is owned by the same owner as Wholesome Factory

and Island Wines.

Expected opening is next summer.

Maybe Trellis will open by that time too.

Stay tuned for more.

UPDATE 6:10 PM - Hudson Related adds:
Hudson Related Retail LLC has signed a lease for a café/juice bar to be located at 503 Main Street. The tenant already owns two successful businesses on Main Street, Wholesome Factory and Island Wine & Spirits. The café will serve juices, smoothies, and light fare such as paninis, salads, and bakery items. Opening is anticipated for summer 2017.
