Nicks has finally made the move to their new location further West down Broadway (near the corner of Bway and Tobey) this week. I went to the new space and it is pretty stunning. The place is beautiful, very sleek and well designed. Long, bright red stone counter, dark stained bent plywood seating, nicer dishes, mugs and silverware, great pressed tin ceiling. The whole thing is very classy, and of course it's much more spacious, with a greatly expanded open kitchen. This should solve all the waiting problems, unless the demand grows proportionally to the space. Best of all the food didn't skip a beat and they're going to be ramping up dinner operations in the coming weeks. Hooray, an dcongrats to the whole crew over there.

All that said, I'm sure I'll miss the tiny, cozy old Nicks. Well. Maybe not.

    Can't wait to try it out. He's a nice guy - I don't know him personally but he's friendly and pleasant to all customers, despite how busy he is - so I'm glad to see this going well for him.

      I went today for my weekly early breakfast. I agree the place is much nicer, but it loses a bit of its old hole in the wall appeal. The food was up to the same standards. It seems that derek is now spending more time sort of supervising and less manning the grill. I went early so it was not crowded yet, so I dont know how they are handling twice the # of customers.

        Does anyone know if they have changed their hours?
