Shoolbred's-Ninth Ward owner bringing Caribbean cuisine to former Holy Basil space

An entity titled "Honey Rider LLC" is on Monday night's CB3/SLA docket. Honey Rider (Ursula Andress played Honey Rider in "Dr. No"!) is looking to take over the former home of Holy Basil, the Thai place on Second Avenue that closed in October after "technical difficulties."

According to documents (PDF!) on file at the CB3 website, Robert Morgan, one of the owners of Shoolbred's and the Ninth Ward on Second Avenue, is behind the new venture. He and his partner plan to serve "Caribbean cuisine," with operating hours of 1 p.m.-2 a.m. Monday-Thursday; 1 p.m.-4 a.m. on Friday; Noon-4 a.m. on Saturday; and noon-1 a.m. on Sunday, according to the documents.

No word yet on any Bond theme.
