Work is getting serious now at 325 Bowery, the future home of Taavo Somer's "classic American diner." The plywood is all around now...
A recap from Fork in the Road and the Nov. 16 CB3/SLA meeting: "Somer plans to fully utilize the bi-level space, creating a 63-seat restaurant with a 38-foot counter on the first floor and a 19-foot bar on the second. His application met with a show of support from members of the community, who bemoaned the current state of the abandoned restaurant, which has become a haven for drug deals and muggings."
