Glaze Teriyaki at 139 Fourth Avenue just reopened their doors after a quick remodel. The teriyaki-centric restaurant opened its Union Square location in 2012, and was one of the first businesses to usher in the Fourth Avenue Renaissance. The newly decorated space has updated its exterior and nearly doubled its seating capacity, but they are still serving their signature fast, casual meals.
Also spotted a few doors down was a soon-to-be-open Le Cafe Coffee at 145 Fourth Avenue. This will be the store’s second outpost, whose first location opened in Union Square in 2013 at 7 East 14th Street. Le Cafe Coffee’s opening is just one of many restaurants choosing to open along Fourth Avenue within the last few years, leading the Village Voice to dub the small stretch a “new restaurant row.” It joins other new businesses on the block, including Fresh & Co, Mi Garba, Liquiteria, and Desi Shack.
