An Aroma Espresso Bar (popular chain in Israel) is opening on W72 (between Amsterdam and Columbus) at the former Straight from the Crate location. I found another location down in Soho (see menupages link below), and the reviews and menu look fantastic. A call to their Soho location yielded a "like in two weeks" estimate for their W72 St. opening.
Aroma Espresso Bar has free WiFi, free delivery, sandwiches with supposedly "great bread", salads, pastries and cookies (including alfajores which are supposedly to die for), a small breakfast menu, iced drinks, and of course coffee, espresso, etc. Reviewers seem to love the coffee and food although some have complained about the portions and delivery.
