Spring Roll Street (Spring Street)

Spring Street runs throw Hudson Square, SoHo and Nolita. A New York (NY) Times article on April 11, 2013, stated “Spring Street, a major east-west artery that friends have nicknamed Spring Roll Street because it’s also home to a sushi spot and a Vietnamese sandwich shop.”

It’s not known how popular “Spring Roll Street” is; this is the only printed citation.


Wikipedia: Spring Street (Manhattan)
Spring Street is a street in Lower Manhattan, New York City, which runs west-east, through the neighborhoods of Hudson Square, SoHo, and Nolita. It runs parallel to and between Dominick, Broome, and Kenmare Streets (to the south), and Vandam and Prince Streets (to the north). The street’s addresses begin at the Bowery and end at West Street, which runs along the Hudson River.

As it passes through the center of SoHo, Spring Street is known for its artists’ lofts, restaurants, and trendy and high-end boutiques, as well as its collection of cast-iron buildings.

Xiao Bao Biscuit was first conceived as an Asian-Southern pop-up operation. But the couple quickly realized locals were clamoring for dead-on Asian dishes like Japanese cabbage pancake okonomiyaki and lamb and pork jiaozi. Their dimly lit and expertly distressed restaurant now sits in a former gas station on Spring Street, a major east-west artery that friends have nicknamed Spring Roll Street because it’s also home to a sushi spot and a Vietnamese sandwich shop.
