You know I'm obsessed with neat old houses, so imagine how my jaw dropped when Sutra Midtown
owner Matt Fritz
told me that as he was expanding into the other side of the old factory building that houses his yoga studio -- and will soon house a juice bar -- he discovered an old 1920s bungalow.
"We literally found a house inside the drywall," he said, still sounding a little amazed.
So Fritz put the kitchen back into what was the house's kitchen, and by the end of the year (depending on city inspections, of course), he'll have a fully operational raw juice bar. He'll be working with local vendors such as Maya's Farm for veggies and The Healthy Nut for snacks and granola.
