SOHO—A tipster reports that the beloved king of caffination, Starbucks, has muscled into yet another Soho space. A new cafe will be opening soon on Houston and West Broadway. The report: "The green paint is already on and sheetrocking in progress. Not surprising they finally found a spot, with several vacancies in the area. The next closest ones were over on Broadway or Varick." Which is too far to walk from Houston and West Broadway! Thank god another location is opening. [RackedWire Inbox]
