The chic Tribeca space reopens this week
There were lots of pouting parents in Tribeca when Moomah closed its doors in April. But just a few weeks later, there’s been a resurrection. “Children were petitioning, moms were crying—even big hulking deliverymen were saying things like, The best part of my day is going away,” says founder Tracey Stewart (Jon’s wife) of her decision to re-open this week. “We’ve tried to come up with a new model where our customers will still be happy and I will have time to expand our vision beyond the four walls of our Tribeca location.”
Here’s the new plan: While the Moomah café will serve Counter Culture coffee drinks, fresh juices, smoothies, and healthy eats Monday through Saturday, from 8am to 4pm, the Funky Forest will only be available for birthday parties, special events, and Moomah workshops. Art project workshops will be offered on Thursdays starting in the summer, with expanded offerings in the fall. And the popular Do It Together Art Kits will be available online, and ‘to-go’ at Moomah. “We’re starting out really small and really basic,” says Stewart. Hey, we’ll take what we can get.
