Seen & Heard: Juice Press Opens Tomorrow

••• Opening Sept 13 at Art Projects International: “Jian-Jun Zhang: Nature.”

••• The Juice Press at 83 Murray opens tomorrow (Sunday), with salads being served as of Monday. UPDATE: A sign on the door now says it’s opening on Monday.

••• A reader texted that Lilly O’Briens pub has opened in its new space at 18 Murray.

••• David Bouley tweeted that “To celebrate the shift in seasonal ingredients from summer to fall, Brushstroke Restaurant is open M-Sat for Lunch.” I think it had been serving lunch, so maybe Saturday is new.

••• Press release: “The Alliance for Downtown New York will unveil a major expansion in its use of solar-powered Big Belly recycling units on Monday. The expansion, made possible through a public-private partnership, will increase the number of high-tech recycling bins in Lower Manhattan from 16 to 174 and will make Vector Media the exclusive media partner for the units’ exteriors.” This is good, but I can’t be the only person who has qualms about touching those handles.

••• September 11 street closures and more, from the Mayor’s Office:

  1. Erik, any idea how late the salads will be served at the Murray Street location?

    • Alas the Juice Press on Laight just stopped selling salads on the weekends :-( Hope that Murray Street will take their place. Their salads are WAY better than Sweetgreen.

  2. Juice Press opens on Monday!
