The restaurant space on the northwest corner of Avenue C and Eighth Street has seen a variety of concepts come and go in recent years.
Lumé, the "Epicurean drinkery," was the last venture to try this corner… which took over for the short-lived Life - Kitchen and Bar … which had taken over for Verso. Other restaurants here in the past seven years include Caffe Pepe Rosso and Caffe Cotto.
Now a group has plans to open a sushi restaurant in the space. Not much is known about the applicants, who will appear before CB3's SLA committee meeting on Jan. 11 for a new liquor license.
The questionnaire (PDF!) on file at the CB3 website ahead of the meeting shows a chef's table seating from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday, with outdoor seating available every day from noon to midnight. In addition, the proprietors have bar seating hours listed on Monday-Wednesday 4 p.m. to midnight, and noon to 4 a.m. Thursday through Sunday.
Here is a diagram of the still-unnamed restaurant that's with the application online...

The SLA meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. in the CB3 office, 59 E. Fourth St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.
