The owners of East Village wine and coffee bar Ost will open a second location at 511 Grand Street near East Broadway by the end of the week. The new Lower East Side space, which replaces Wing Hing restaurant, is slightly smaller than the Avenue A original and won’t serve wine, but owners tell Grub that they plan to be up and running with Intelligentsia coffee and Eastern-European pastries by Saturday at the latest.
