Paprika, which specialized in Northern Italian cuisine, quietly closed back in the spring at 110 St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue.
Applicants who plan on opening a casual French-American cafe will appear before CB3's SLA committee on Monday. They are seeking a beer-wine license…
The applicants include Hamid Rashidzada of the Summit Bar on Avenue C and most recently Bara on First Avenue, and chef David Malbequi, who worked for Daniel Boulud, according to paperwork (PDF!) on file ahead of the meeting at the CB3 website.
The still-unnamed cafe will serve American-French comfort food with daily lunch service from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The configuration shows 14 tables seating 58 people and a bar with 4-6 seats.
The July SLA committee meeting is Monday at the CB3 office, 59 E. Fourth St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.
