First Look at Nolita Mart, the Latest Stumptown Bar in Little Chitaly


Till now, the gentrification of Mott Street hadn’t really spread south of L’asso with its Stumptown coffee (unless you count the now-vacant space that briefly housed the Mott), but now the Little Chitaly crowd has a new place for Stumptown, at 156 Mott Street. James Fong and wife Selina Ho developed the new building at that address, and rather than looking for a ground-floor tenant, they snagged some barn wood from a farm near Albany and built what they describe as “a smaller version of a Dean & Deluca or Whole Foods.”

Up front, a coffee bar serves drip and single shots made from beans that are ground on-site, and in the back, there are an estimated 2,000 products, ranging from baby stuff to cleaning supplies to packaged foods from brands like Organic Valley, Stoneyfield, Annie’s, Amy’s, and soon milk from Battenkill Valley Creamery. The pastries come from Park Slope’s Colson Patisserie, which doesn’t send its products across the bridge too often. For now, hours are daily from 7 a.m. till 9 p.m.
