LTK coming to scarsdale!!

I have mixed feelings i love the LTK in greenwich.Im afraid that the location of this one by the train station is a death sentence.If this one is half as good as the other LTKs and remain byob.They should outlive the jinx

        Is there even enough room in that space for tables and chairs? I seem to recall that it was pretty tight unless they took over a neighboring space.

          The one in greenwich on rochelle st only has a few tables.They do mostly takeout.What tables they have are close together.So we shall see if they can slip a few in.But really their food is a cut above the other options in the immediate area

      1. re: mrsdebdav

        yes one can only assume same owners.Im looking forward to it

      2. I wish them luck...the location is a tough one!

        1. Where is it opening? People have said by the train, but where by the train?? Thanks.

            Next to CVS on the bridge (that is under major construction).

          2. The massive and delayed construction killed nearly every business on the Popham Road side of the Scarsdale train station. The restaurant which previously was in the LTK space -- Rich Chinese -- was a very good takeout place.

            I think you have to be absolutely nuts to open any business there until that construction is done.

            FYI -- the designers of that mini-"shopping center" must have been high when they designed it and the village of Scarsdale board must have been drugged when they approved it. The foot traffic potential of that whole spot is pretty slim, especially on the Popham Road side. CitiBabes already closed up shop there. All'Antica is under "new management," but God knows why, and there is plenty of unleased space there. The construction put a few places out of business there. I don't think I've ever had more than one person stand in front of me on line at that CVS. What kind of Kool Aid were all these people drinking?

              "I think you have to be absolutely nuts to open any business there until that construction is done."

              I totally agree. But I would like to have a thai place there since there are not many other thai options.

              Not sure I agree on the construction killing Citibabes, though, since it's not the kind of place that gets foot traffic. I think it was more like the $2,000 membership fee that killed it!

              1. re: valerie

                Is there a projected date on the construction completion? To say it is annoying is an understatement. Plus, I'd hate to see a Thai restaurant (that delivers) go under before they had a chance build a clientele.

                1. re: Maryld

                  It seems that the entire bridge over the Metro North track is being replaced.. I haven't seen any projected completion date.
                  I miss Rich--the restaurant that was in the new LTK space. But I am glad to have another option in the area.
                  Now if they would only put a turn signal at the intersection by the Metro Diner.... but that is getting off topic.

            2. FYI JTK is next to CVS and its BYOB.
              Simple

              1. Sorry its LTK that is next to CVS and has BYOB...FYI

                1. I just spoke to the owner on site. Says he is planning on opening on May 30th. If you are in the area, try to support the place or it will be out of business in a blink.

                    Opening in the middle of that awful construction zone -- I hope this guy got a dirt cheap lease.

                    1. re: PlasticMoonRain

                      Seriously, that construction is out of hand!

                      But I will give it a shot after it opens.

                      1. re: jwg

                        Yes, thank goodness for delivery. Are the LTK menus pretty much standard? By the way, my neighbor said that Salzburg Cafe and an Italian pastry shop from Eastchester are opening up shop in "downtown" Scarsdale.

                        1. re: Maryld

                          I saw a sign for Martine's in Scarsdale Village, a door or 2 down from the Parkway Cafe. Is that the pastry shop you refer to? It would be nice to have an alternative to La Renaissance and Lulu's.

                          1. re: iluvcookies

                            Yes, that's it. I heard Salzburg Cafe (excellent pastry but served with a whole lot of attitude at the Rye location) was going into Christie Place.

                            1. re: Maryld

                              The stuff at Salzburg is fabulous. There's a reason there is always a line. :) I have never encountered attitude there, but they definitely want to move people along when they are ordering.
