Teaser paper has been in the windows of 250 Broome Street for months, advertising the forthcoming arrival of Kottu House. Now, with new retractable awning in place, the proper unveiling is finally afoot. Tomorrow is opening day, and they promise to put the neighborhood in a “food coma.”
As reported in October, Kottu House is a slender new grub spot that specializes in Sri Lankan fare. It’ll mainly serve the namesake dish – Kottu – a traditional dinner option native to the country.
250 Broome is unchartered territory for Kottu House. Indeed, this location is the first brick-and-mortar operation for the brand, which previously dabbled in catering and private parting hosting.
Home Espresso Bar was the prior occupant at this address, you might remember. The cozy cafe lasted two years on Broome Street and offered a nice alternative to the Irving Farm Coffee Roasters (nee 88 Orchard). The business was reportedly evicted last summer by landlord SMA Equities (aka Samy Mahfar).
