Cafe Jia Coming Soon; Michelle’s Kitchen Closed Already?

I noticed a couple of things while walking down 46th street btw. 5+6th the other day… the first is Cafe Jia, a new place opening soon right next to Nino’s. Sadly it looks like another generic deli, but it does say tex-mex bar, a teppanyaki (think hibachi) bar and a gourmet coffee bar (I’ll believe that when I see it). You never know, this place could be good. (We’re not keeping our hopes up.) Regardless, it’s supposed to be open 24 hours, so they’ve got that going for them.

Remember Michelle’s on the same block?

Michelle’s Kitchen Opens Restaurant on 46th

Roving blogger Dave Cook, from Eating in Translation, spent Monday wandering around Midtown and discovered a new potential lunch’ing spot.  Michelle’s Kitchen, the Upper East Side catering company, has opened Michelle’s Restaurant on 46th Street btw. 5+6th.  They claim to be a French/Belgium hybrid specializing in sandwiches, hot food, and sides (although today they have lasagna and penne, so I guess we should throw Italian in there too.)  A lot of the hot food might be just out of the Midtown Lunch price range, but according to Dave all the sandwiches are right in the Midtown Lunch sweet spot.  Anybody been yet?  Let us know how it is in the comments.

Michelle’s Restaurant, 9 W. 46th St. (btw. 5+6th), 212-302-6322
