The north corridor of Lenox above 125th Street is starting to see some retail action happening again since the Red Rooster opened last year. A reader sent in a photo of the long-vacant Soup Man space at 414 Lenox and it looks like a frozen yogurt store is about to open up soon. Chill Berry appears to be a local version of another famous yogurt chain and will take over the storefront just south of 131st Street that has been empty for over two years now. A branch of Ambassades will also debut at 127th Street and an under construction lounge is prepping up closer to 126th. These new establishments within a half dozen blocks will join a restaurant row which also includes Sylvia's, Chez Lucienne, Jacob's and La Perle Noir cafe
