Glaze Teriyaki Takes Pot Shot at Teriyaki Boy
Curious about the forthcoming Glaze Teriyaki, the Seattle style teriyaki joint opening on Lex btw. 54+55th? Wined and Dined forwarded us a link to their business plan, which has a few tasty nuggets we didn’t know originally, like… the owner of Glaze was a co-owner of Spotlight Live in Times Square, and they see Chipotle as their business model (wonder if they’re concerned about this?) But our favorite part of the pitch is how they describe Teriyaki Boy: “In contrast to Seattle, New York has only one comparable restaurant (Teriyaki Boy) with three locations. Unfortunately, Teriyaki Boy serves poor quality, tasteless Teriyaki and has been unfavorably reviewed on Yelp.com.” Ouch. My old co-worker Stanley T respectfully disagrees.
Nothing is set in stone yet, but we’re hearing that Glaze hopes to be open the week after Thanksgiving.
