Miansai is a purveyor of leather goods and minimalist jewelry, and at their little store on Crosby Street, you can also get some tea or on-tap kombucha.

It’s always quiet out there, and there are a few tables where you can either have a private conversation or just sit by yourself and stare up at the sky while you drink artisanal tea and contemplate purchasing a brass cuff or a wallet.
