The cozy Italian eatery had been in business at 92 Rivington Street for years. However, for Bruscheteria, the end arrived back in January, and the restaurant quickly faded into the annals of Lower East Side dead. Its departure left behind a prime space in the heart of Hell Square. And it didn’t remain vacant for long. White window dressing was installed shortly after the closure, signaling the inevitable. That inevitable is seemingly not another bar, but a new Japanese fast-casual joint.

Mimi and Coco is almost ready to unveil its “Japanese street food, New York style” brick-and-mortar here at 92 Rivington. The soon-to-open establishment began life on the foodie fest circuit, previously peddling their trademark teriyaki balls at the likes of Madison Square Eats and Smorgasburg.
