As noted back on Feb. 26, restaurateur Daniel Delaney will appear before the CB3 SLA committee this month for a liquor license at 167 First Ave. between East 10th Street and East 11th Street.
At that time, there wasn't much information about the proposal. Given the name on the application (Delaney Chicken Union Square LLC), we thought it might be an offshoot of his Delaney Chicken that opened in the UrbanSpace Vanderbilt market in Midtown last September.
However, Delaney told Eater that he was exploring a number of options, and had not yet signed a lease. (He also operates BrisketTown out in Williamsburg.)
Thanks to the public questionnaire (PDF!) now on file at the CB3 website, there are some more details about the proposal. The name is Delaney Barbecue, and the paperwork shows hours of noon to 2 a.m. Monday to Friday; 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The configuration calls for 18 tables good for 48 seats along with a bar that accommodates 10 patrons.
There's also a proposed menu showing the variety of meats (served family style, Delaney is recommending a half-pound per guest...) and sides that might be served...
The previous tenant here at 167 First Ave., Ashiya Sushi, relocated to West 36th Street last summer.
CB3's SLA committee meeting is March 14 at 6:30 p.m. in the CB3 office, 59 E. Fourth St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.
