Seen & Heard: Deli Closing

••• Affina Nails & Spa (above) at Church and Murray is now open. It’s having a sale: 20% off any treatment.

••• Speaking of nail salons: The new i-Plaza Nail & Spa in the Zinc Building (at Greenwich and Watts) opens today.

••• Ed Burns is speaking at 92YTribeca on Jan. 31—I didn’t put it in a Coming Up round-up because his new film, Newlyweds, wasn’t being screened, but now it is, so there you go.

••• Twin Café, the deli at Greenwich and Murray, is closing after tomorrow.

••• Gruyere with roasted onions is among the sandwiches returning (and being added) to Wichcraft‘s menu, starting Jan. 31

••• The new-build at 482 Greenwich (northwest corner of Greenwich and Canal) is going up fast. There’s more on it here, including a rendering of the finished building.



  1. Any idea what will replace Twin Cafe? I think we need another nail salon… Kidding aside, it would be nice to replace it with a real, functioning deli!

  2. Same question as Carol. I can’t say I’ll be sorry to see the Twin Cafe leaving — the food and service was poor, the food was bad, and I left that place feeling ripped off more than a few times. That said, they were helpful for some late night Advil or something along those lines. Would love to see a nicer deli move in there, though Amish is just a block away so I’m not sure that’ll happen.

  3. Twin Cafe was disgusting – glad it’s gone.

  4. Looking for a good Chinese restaurant !
