Grey Lady recently closed up its seasonal sidecar clam shack at 77 Delancey Street. Summer fun in the sun is done, after all. The adjoining space of rotating tenants is instead hosting a confectionary joint called Zulu’s.

The red-painted storefront and its signage says it’ll offer “confections, cold brew, and croissants.” Owner Nick Devane further explains that Zulu’s – a nod to his dog – is essentially a 1920s-themed cafe stand featuring oft-overlooked candies (Abba-Zaba, Zagnuts, Oh Henry) alongside standbys such as salt water taffy, fudge, and chocolate covered cranberries from Aunt Leah’s in Nantucket. In addition, Growlers of Cisco beer and nine bottled craft brews will be available for in-store purchase. Specialty drinks are also component, each named after “our favorite dogs” (Ichabod, Ruger, Calypso, Jasper and Winston to start).

Unlike its retail predecessors, we are told that Zulu’s is permanent, and will open 6am during the week/8am on the weekends. Closing time is between 10pm and 11pm.

Bonus points for the Nikolai Volkoff wrestling figurine above the entrance.
