As Eater has reported, Momofuku Milk Bar applied for a liquor license at 251 E. 13th St. across the street from the current Milk Bar location. Per Eater: "The folks at Momo Milk are considering taking up the space, for an expansion or to move the operation."
The CB3/SLA committed approved an MBII license in February. "When the committee questioned the need for a bakery to have a full liquor license, representatives eloquently spoke out about their need being mainly for baking purposes, and for a boozy milkshake. They would simply serve two types of beer for patrons who did not wish to have dessert," Eater reported.
So apparently the MB11 team is moving forward with plans to expand. On Wednesday, workers arrived and removed the old hair-salon canopy from the 251 storefront.
The DOB issued work permits for "replacement of storefront" last week.
