In October, a group headed by Paul Seres went before the CB3/SLA committee to discuss a new venture called Apartment 13 at 115 Avenue C between East Eighth Street and East Seventh Street. As we understand it, some neighbors opposed the plan, in part due to the presence of co-applicant Aleksandra Drozd of Ludlow Manor/DL (and The Delancey). The committee denied the plan, and the applicants withdrew before appearing before the full Community Board that month.
Apartment 13 returns to the docket for this Monday's CB3/SLA meeting. And, according to paperwork (PDF!) on file with CB3, this time around, only the name of Paul Seres, president of the New York Nightlife Association and a member of Community Board 4 (serving Chelsea), is listed as an applicant.
There are also more details. For instance, here is the dining concept:
All entrees at Apt 13 will be market driven and will be served in the same style as Korean barbeque. Every dish will be served with side dishes, appetizers, condiments, sauces, salads, and garnitures. Seasonally and locally driven. Family styled dinners. Meant to feel reminiscent of an intimate sit down dinner in our apartment. All dishes will change based on market availability. In following the theme and mission statement of apartment 13 we strive to not only support our local state Farms but also our neighborhood by featuring local artists and supporting local businesses.
The paperwork shows 36 tables seating 80 people... and one bar seating 12 people.
And the proposed hours are as follows:
Saturday — 11 a.m. - 4a.m.
Sunday — 11 a.m. - midnight
Monday — closed
Tuesday-Wednesday — 4 p.m. - midnight
Thursday-Friday — 4 p.m. - 2 a.m.
The committee meeting is Monday night at 6:30, JASA/Green Residence, 200 E. Fifth St. at the Bowery.
