Former Lassi Space Is Reborn As Satay Junction

This week Brick Lane Curry House owner Sati Sharma and manager Vivek Deora teamed up with Raj Dodani (partner in Newark sister restaurant Partha Junction) to open a sixteen-seat Indonesian joint at 28 Greenwich Avenue (clearly they weren’t dissuaded by former tenant Heather Carlucci-Rodriguez of bygone Lassi calling the landlord a “schmuck”). As you might guess, the new place specializes in meat, fish, and veggies on a stick, and other street foods as interpreted by chef Durayati Djunaedi, who grew up in Jakarta and has spent her most recent years cooking traditional made-from-scratch Indonesian food for weddings and events in Israel. Hours are Sunday to Thursday, noon till 11 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays from noon till 1 a.m. Prices (as listed on the menu) are decidedly NYU-friendly.
