Jacob’s Pickles is MOVING

Jacob's Pickles

Jacob himself hopped on a call with Community Board 7 this week to drop a pickle-flavored bombshell. His first and most famous Upper West Side restaurant, Jacob’s Pickles, will be moving from its current location to a new one. But, fret not, it won’t be moving far.


The comfort food favorite Jacob Hadjigeorgis opened in 2011 at 509 Amsterdam Avenue (between 84th and 85th streets) will be moseying on up to 680-688 Columbus Avenue (between 93rd and 94th streets). Jacob told surprised board members that while everything is staying the same – “hours, operation, concept” – they’ve come to the point that they need more space.

He says the new location will offer roughly double the footprint; he’ll be taking over the storefronts previously occupied by Agave, Elizabeth’s Neighborhood Table and New Amsterdam Burger Bar.

“Fantastic,” said one board member. “That’s fantastic,” echoed another.

Jacob is hoping to be at the new location serving his pickles, fried chicken, biscuits, mac and cheese, griddle specialties and beyond by September.

Hadjigeorgis became a neighborhood fixture not too long after opening his first Upper West Side restaurant, and in time, he’s become a fixture of the New York City food scene. Jacob’s Pickles has itself expanded with locations at Time Out Market DUMBO and the Moynihan Train Hall, in Norwalk, CT and at Citi Field.


Through Pickle Hospitality, he also opened Maison Pickle at 84th and Broadway in 2016, followed by Tiki Chick at 85th and Columbus in 2019. Lucky Pickle Dumpling Co, which he opened in 2018, became the talk of the town for its pickle-flavored soft-serve ice cream, though it has since closed.

Hadjigeorgis has also given back to the neighborhood, forming partnerships with the West Side Campaign Against Hunger and the UAGC Garden.

We’ll provide updates when we know more.
