Finding ‘Treasure’ at the Former Boys Don’t Cry on Orchard Street

Posted on: November 12th, 2021 at 5:01 am by

The revolving door of nightlife continues at 22 Orchard Street, where a newcomer is looking to take the torch from Boys Don’t Cry.

Christopher Yerington – former general manager of the shuttered Black & White on East 10th Street – is looking to update the map, so to speak, with a cafe-bar called Treasure Club.

The seven-table establishment will offer a selection of sandwiches, vegan chili, soups, coffee, and fresh-squeezed juices. And, of course, booze, for which Yerington heads before Community Board 3 on Monday for requisite approval.

He seeks full liquor license for Treasure Club with closing times of 2:00am during the week, and 4:00am weekends.

Boys Don’t Cry closed earlier this year. It was the third of three restaurants that tried to make it happen at this address in recent years – the others being Fung Tu, Nom Wah Tu – all with Wilson Tang’s fingerprints.
