If you’re a fan of Cheeky Sandwiches, you’ll want to know that the quirky New Orleans-inspired po’ boy spot has resurfaced at 119 Essex St..
“A bad case of the landlords.” That’s the way the situation was described on Instagram the other day. Cheeky Sandwiches opened at 35 Orchard St. in late 2009. There was an eviction notice on the door and a promise that the restaurant would be back. A followup, post explained, “Thank You All for the support and patience during this transition to the new Cheeky Sandwiches. We had some good times at 35 Orchard St. Let’s make some new memories together at our pop up and next location.”
It’s unclear how long the restaurant will be staying in the new location. This coming week, Noah Cohon will go before Community Board 3 to request support for a liquor permit at 119 Essex St. he apparently plans to open a catering facility for private events.
