Comings and Goings on The Upper West Side
Today, I noticed that La Grand Esquina, the barber shop on 81st Street and Amsterdam that has been around seemingly forever, is closed. Its barbers have all moved a bit further uptown and the place is for rent. Hopefully it will not be a bank, and I am hoping its not a fourth sushi restaurant.
Columbus Bakery on 83rd Street and Columbus (duh) is undergoing renovations. The permits appear to confirm this, so I don't think they are closing.
Finally, the Funky Diner has been replaced on Columbus with "Cafe Blossom," which appears to be Kosher. I was returning with Boy 1 from Hebrew School when I noticed it and he was in no mood for me to peruse the menu. If anyone knows anything, let me know.
