Garden Of Eden 3rd. Ave.,now & then

BluPlateSpec | Feb 5, 2005 12:15 AM

The Garden Of Eden store on 3rd. Ave. closed the other day in a space that had some other notable food establishments. Years ago there was a soul food restaurant named Jack's Nest. There used to be fancy cars double and triple parked along the block all night long and the place was always packed. For some reason they moved to I believe W. 56 St. and closed sometime thereafter. It was followed by a BBQ place and that also closed. Before those places there was an attempt to make a fashionable pool hall but it was before its time and didn't last long. Before all of them there was a Japanese nightclub there. Maybe somebody knows more of the history of these places.
