New York is getting pickled. According to The Wall Street Journal, not one, but two new pickle restaurants are opening in the city. Two existing pickle outfits are expanding their wares to other locations.
The previously retail-focused Pickle Guys is moving to a new space with both a restaurant and retail shop, and they will be serving up fried pickles of all sorts. It’s expected to open early this year. (Presumably, they’ll still be selling their branded mousepad, because nothing says “computer work” like a good pickle.)
And an Upper West Side pickle restaurant, Jacob’s Pickles, is opening up a sister restaurant called Maison Pickle, opening on Saturday, January 14. The pickles will share a menu with several different takes on the French dip sandwich.
Here’s to hoping the city doesn’t sour on its pickle love.
