Mystery Solved: Kutsher’s Deli

Well, well, well! The updated CB1 agendas for this week mention that Kutsher’s Deli—one of our recent mysteries—is slated for the massive 186 Franklin, formerly the site of Mai House (and before that, TriBakery) and currently the Tribeca Grill event space. Alas, it was also stricken, with a note saying that it has been postponed till May.

Also postponed till May: the bar/restaurant license for 116 Duane.

But look what popped up: a liquor-license restaurant for an unnamed pizza restaurant at 61 Reade, formerly Heng Shing restaurant (so it’s one of the storefronts in the low-slung building near Broadway).
