Looks like this is really going to happen. My source met the owner and I understand it is set to open in 2 weeks.

        I wish them luck. I used to go there often when I lived on the upper west side. Hopefully this location will work out better for them than it did for the other restaurants.

          Perhaps they will break the curse on this location. 3 restaurants have closed in this spot in the last few years. They are different enough that they might make it if they keep the prices down. Their sushi might give Mitzuyan a run for the money (I ordered recently from SM and it was unusually bad)

      I also heard a rumor that Carlos and Gabbys (Five Towns, Brooklyn, Riverdale) was also opening in Teaneck. Anyone hear this??

        I've only heard it as a rumor as well (much like the post above). I'm trying to think where it would go.....I don't think Cedar Lane has any closed down restaurants, I wonder about the Korn and Hirsch bakery that closed down on Queen Anne near W. Englewood.

            No idea Debby.... I asked the owner at EJ's months ago what was going in and at the time he said "A schwarma place". I have not heard anything since.

        From Koshertopia.com:

        Its Not Estihana in Teaneck… – Exclusive
        Friday, March 25th, 2011

        If it’s not Estihana what is it? Koshertopia has confirmed with management that what was originally reported a new Estihana in Teaneck is now going to be known as CHAIKO TAPAS. Hopefully opening within two weeks, Chaiko Tapas at 515 Cedar Lane will be a combination of Asian & Spanish fusion (with a sushi bar). The new restaurant will be under the supervision of the RCBC

        My take: Asian/Spanish fusion with sushi bar? I'm happy to see the tapas trend coming to a kosher restaurant (what few tapas I've made at home have been very tasty, and I like the idea of many small plates), but why fuse it with Asian? Also, odd timing, if they're actually aiming to open in two weeks - it's right before they'd probably be closing for Pesach.
