Reminders tonight: CB3 SLA licensing meeting; plus a look at 200 Avenue A

Reminder for tonight... here's the latest rundown with a few scratches...

And the application that will likely draw the most conversation: Ave A Hospitality LLC, 200 Ave A (op)

The people hoping to take over the one-time home to Superdive have been before the CB3/SLA committee three times — and turned down each time... We heard the concept during one of the meetings — an art gallery with a full-service restaurant. Read the background here.

But let's take a fresh look at the application, now on file at the CB3 website. (PDF)

The three principals are looking at business hours of 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday; until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The kitchen will be open to within one hour of closing. The application also shows that they'd be 19 tables seating 52 people, plus one bar with 12 additional seats. The gallery-restaurant would employ between 20-25 people. Lastly, there are proposed "promoted events, scheduled performances."
