It has now been confirmed that Sapphire Indian Cuisine’s new location will be at 2014 Broadway, between 68th and 69th Streets.
Originally, Sapphire announced they’d be at 2012 Broadway. This location is currently occupied by Nanoosh. So anyone who was concerned that Nanoosh would close can take a deep breath.
Until September 12th, Sole Bistro Italiano was the occupant at 2014 Broadway. We spoke with someone from Lincoln Square BID who confirmed this was the Italian restaurant’s last day. Sole Bistro first opened during March of 2018. So they’ve made it past the one year mark.
Lincoln Square BID also mentioned that Sapphire should be opening up in a few weeks (they were originally supposed to open on September 1st).
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Sapphire, here’s the menu.
And here are some visuals, starting with the buffet:
Scallops in a raisin and tomato chutney and mini pooris stuffed with chick pea potato and yogurt:
Chicken saag (made with fresh spinach, fenugreek and spices) with basmati rice, lamb biriyani and naan:

We do hope they’ll be opening this month; we’ll provide an update once we know more!Join our newsletter for more food news:
