Over on First Avenue at St. Mark's Place, the owners of Good Night Sonny have been opening the bar-restaurant, like on Saturday night, to work out the kinks.
As previously reported, the proprietors of The Wayland on Avenue C and East Ninth Street took over the space after Simone closed last November.
Wayland partner Robert Ceraso shared more about the name of the new venture with us in April:
"It’s named after my maternal grandfather. Our family owned a bar on the corner of Mulberry and Hester for 40 years or so. He sold it in the 1960s. Even though he hadn’t been a bartender in 50 years, my grandfather still always kept our late hours. The name is my grandmother saying good night to him when she would go up to bed. We wanted to honor our elders as well as all the woman in our lives who put up with our crazy lifestyle and schedule."
Ahead of the official grand opening, Good Night Sonny is offering a limited menu, featuring oysters and clams from their raw bar. You can find more photos and details on the Good Night Sonny Facebook page.
