Tiny Empire—the Williamsburg juice brand that eased us into summer with simple smoothie recipes—is gearing up for its Manhattan debut, albeit a bit behind schedule. Though they initially planned on an early summer opening, the signage that EV Grieve noticed on the corner of Spring and Lafayette streets reads "early August."
Tiny Empire let its Instagram followers know about the news, too:
The address was most recently home to a Ricky's NYC "Urgent Beauty Care" pop-up shop last fall. And at this time last year, the five-story building outside of the 6 subway station was rumored to have been snatched up by the Kardashians, perhaps as a replacement for the Dash store down the block—however, the building still has a large "For Lease" sign that faces Lafayette Street.
