In one of the odder restaurant developments this year, Chiles and Chocolate, the Oaxacan restaurant, has picked up lock, stock, and barrel, and switched spaces with Amin, the Indian restaurant a couple blocks away.
The two restaurants, at 54 and 92 Seventh Avenue respectively, apparently had the same owner this whole time (believe it or not), and he made the decision to swap spaces. Workers have been going back and forth between restaurants for the past couple days, lugging food and equipment (top).
Amin's menu will stay the same, but Chiles and Chocolate has vastly expanded theirs with some American dishes, adding more appetizers, salads, pastas, sandwiches, and burgers.
