First Look: The Multitalented Miss Lily’s New Bookstore–Jewelry Shop–D.J. Booth–Juice Bar

Miss Lily’s Variety, at 130 West Houston Street, which opened this week right next door to Miss Lily’s luncheonette (, gives us another reason to celebrate Serge Becker and Matt Goias’s presentation of Caribbean fare and flare. The West Indian”themed store provides vinyl records, jewelry, and books alongside great food and juices. This is the view as you enter the shop; Miss Lily’s Bake Shop and Melvin’s Juice Box are past the exit sign. Photo: Wendy Goodman

You will also find a D.J. booth for spinning on the spot. Photo: Wendy Goodman

For years, Melvin cheerfully served up delicious juice concoctions at LifeThyme. Now he presides over his own Juice Box, which has a gorgeous and spirited team. Pictured, from left, Ashley, Kim, Melvin, and Shoshana. Photo: Wendy Goodman
