Long-time UWS Chinese restaurant The Cottage – now dubbed New Cottage – has reopened, and can now be found at 2199 Broadway, on the corner of 78th Street.
“We hope the community can visit us for an amazing experience of Szechuan cuisine and taste our famous Szechuan dumplings!”
New Cottage is also offering a 20% discount for dine-in and take-out until November 15.
The original Cottage restaurant opened on 76th and Columbus in 1981. A year later, they relocated to 77th and Amsterdam. This location closed last year when the building’s new landlord refused to renew the restaurant’s lease.
The previous tenant at 2199 Broadway was La Caridad, which also closed last year after serving the Upper West Side since the late 1960s.
Here’s a look at New Cottage’s menu.
New Cottage is open daily from 11am to 10pm.
Will they give our free bottles of wine? ;P
So blessed to see it resurrect!
Super excited for delish food and wine!!!
Can’t wait to go ASAP! They are an institution! And hopefully still provide free Franzia haha
Now the menu looks like a generic Chinese food menu. Doubtful if they’ll be pouring wine; if they do, I’ll go anyway, I suppose.
Do we know about the wine?
Does anyone know if they are they delivering yet?
Judging from staff and menu changes, it’s an entirely new restaurant with a Hunam Gardens/Szechuan Gardens (generic UWS restaurants for decades) menu. Sadly, it’s
Cottage in name only with $11 lunch menu prices and $19 shrimp dishes – who says we weren’t spoiled by former quality and prices of the “old” Cottage before too much grease and oil covered every dish?
Many missing OG Cottage items from the menu and who offers Moo Shu vegetable and Moo Shu shrimp but no Moo Shu pork?
I checked with the “front desk” mgr and free wine is “on the way when permit comes.” Yeah, and the check is in the mail. All that time– what’s it been, a year or more? — that signage indicated that this location is the “new” home of the “old” Cottage but the permit request is no further along in the process? We can hope the Franzia is around the corner but this sure ain’t your father’s….or mother’s Cottage. Time will tell.
