Renovations began yesterday on First Avenue at Second Street at the former Cafe Rama. Last fall, the Bean had plans to take over this space, though they ultimately decided to focus instead on the new locations on Second Avenue/Third Street and First Avenue/Ninth Street.
Work permits, which the city issued Wednesday, don't provide too much information. The usual all-cap crap:
INTERIOR MODIFICATION AND ALTERATION AT THE EXISTING 1ST FLOOR (CORNER) COMMERCIAL SPACE, RELOCATION OF EXISTING HOOD AND COOKING EQUIPMENT. STORE, FRONT AND CARPENTRY WORK. NO CHANGE IN USE, EGRESS, OR
One trusted tipster believes that the people who run the Cloister Cafe on East Ninth Street near Second Avenue are behind this new, unnamed venture...
