Key Food appears to be relocating about a block away from its current location. Now located at 755 Amsterdam Avenue (at 97th Street), it seems to be moving to 739 Amsterdam Avenue (at 96th Street). Our reader – no-nonsense liquor license lawyer Bob Romano – recently spotted a liquor license application (which was filed on May 3) in the window.
Another tipster – ‘Upper West Sider’ – previously sent us a link to a filing document with Key Food’s information.
The commercial property – which includes buildings 721 to 739 – is located on the ground floor of a residential condominium, 175 West 95th Street. It also recently became home to a new PlantShed, which opened at 723 Amsterdam Avenue.
Key Food shoppers might be happy to hear this news, as the current location has … mixed reviews (with a lot of complaints specifically about its narrow aisles). So a change in location could certainly widen them …
The new setting is also a bit more aesthetically pleasing.
