Red Strype’s Marc Solomon Opens a New Spot at 115 Eldridge St.
A transformation has occurred at 115 Eldridge Street, where a little crepe place has been operating the last couple of years. La Crepe C’est Si Bon is now focusing on catering, while the storefront gives way to a new spot from Marc Solomon, who ran the legendary Red Strype Bar in Soho and the original A Train Cafe in Harlem.
We heard from “Chef King Solomon” yesterday, who said “La Senorita” soft launched for friends and family a couple of weeks ago. Per Facebook, Solomon is “back in the neighbourhood where he started, cooking up fresh flavours of Puerto Rican Panqueques, while Señora Claudia serves up café Cubanos to the sights and sounds of yesterday.”
Solomon told us his partners, Claudia Lin and Vincent Bertault will be running the show most of the time because these days he splits his time “shuttling” between New York and Miami. From time to time he pops up at Spur Tree, the Caribbean lounge at 76 Orchard St.
The new Eldridge Street spot is open Wednesday-Sunday 6 p.m.- 2 a.m. — 4 a.m. on weekends.
