What looks to be a bodega-ish store is preparing to open on the corner of Canal & Essex. Yes, this is the same building that new “Jewish fusion” restaurant we’ve been telling you about would occupy. Apparently, at least one of the partners behind the restaurant project has owned the building for many years. There appear to be three distinct retail spaces on the ground floor. At a community board meeting, the restaurant’s owners referred to a “green grocer” that would be moving in next door.
