Seen & Heard: New wine store for Greenwich Street

A new wine store is coming to the old GameStop space on Greenwich next to Whole Foods. When I knocked, the man who came to the door was not interested in talking, and wouldn’t give any details on opening, but I could spy bottles already on the shelves.

More Sweetgreen news: the Chambers Street store (in the old Pret a Manger space just east of West Broadway on the north side) is maybe three weeks from completion, according to the best guess by the guy delivering the coolers. He said they are opening another 20 stores (!) in the city; that’s really a word on the street, so take it as such, though we do know the company got a $200 million cash infusion and is also expanding its tech – more than 50 percent of orders come through the app.


Brookfield will host a festival of Portuguese traditional music (called Fado) May 1 to 4, starting with two free lunchtime concerts by Portuguese singer Sofia Ribeiro on May 1 and 2, both at noon. An award-winning performer, Ribeiro’s latest recording, Mar Sonoro, embraces fado, jazz and contemporary Brazilian music. Ribeiro has performed extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe, and has released a total of eight studio albums. The Fado Festival – which goes through May 11 on the other side of the river in the Ironbound in Newark – will also include a free evening concert at the Winter Garden with a double bill featuring Camané and Ana Sofia Varela on May 3 at 7:30p. (The Tiny Desk concert with Camane is above.) For more info:




  1. Maybe Archive needs to get a tad friendlier or change their very welcoming window sign!!

  2. Just got a chance to go to Archive wine. And I left in less than 5 minutes.where as I did not expect it to be inexpensive as was blown away at HOW expensive they are. On many common liquors they were 100% higher than the rest of the hood. I hope they realize and make changes soon or were going to have another Nail salon here soon.
