The newly openly Spicy Pickle at 143 Montague Street, which six weeks ago opened in the space long occupied by the beloved Armando’s restaurant, has already cut out its breakfast menu–and sliced its morning hours.
Specializing in paninis, salads and subs, Pickle opened its doors Aug. 14, marking the first New York location and 43rd opening for the Denver-based chain.
Until last week, it was open 7 a.m.-10 p.m., with a full breakfast menu. Now, it’s downsized to 11 a.m.-10 p.m.–just in time for Court Street workers to start making their way into the Heights.
Update: Marilyn Davenport, Vice President of Marketing for Spicy Pickle responds, “Oftentimes stores that open in a new market go through a testing process to evaluate operational and menu efficiencies. This was the case with our breakfast program in this market. We thought we would introduce some new products to see if breakfast was a daypart we might want to explore in more of our markets nationwide. Additionally, this Spicy Pickle has only been open for 6 weeks, and it is standard practice for a new store to make adjustments in the initial weeks, to better service the community, streamline its operations, and provide an experience that is localized and fits the needs of its customers.”
