Familiar names looking to open new concept in the former Gandhi space

On Monday, we reported that Gandhi, an East Sixth Street mainstay, had closed for good.

Apparently the space won't be sitting vacant for too long.

Applicants seeking a new liquor license will appear before CB3's SLA committee this month.

According to public paperwork (PDF!) on file at the CB3 website, Shane Covey, co-owner of Upstate around the corner, and Adam Elzer, operating partner at Sauce Restaurant, Supper, Lil Frankie's and Frank, have designs on a new restaurant here just west of First Avenue.

There isn't any mention of the type of food that will be served here. Paperwork shows a configuration of 14 tables, good for 40 seats, and one bar with 8 seats. The proposed hours are 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday-Thursday; 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday-Sunday.

This month's CB3-SLA meeting is Aug. 17 at 6:30 p.m. at the Community Board 3 office, 59 E. Fourth St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.

Ghandi used to be the best and then little things, like your condiments would be fetid, the tablecloths became paper, the portions smaller and smaller and not changed each time between service...3 little cubes of lamb in my saag just doesn't cut it and if the sauce has turned, I'm not going back. I am glad to hear we'll be getting yet ANOTHER resource for alcohol, its a form of chemical warfare being used against the volk and I'm all for that.
