Reps from some of the bars were apparently on-hand to discuss their ventures. One tidbit. We didn't know who was angling for the space at 211 E. Fourth St. vacated late last year by JujoMukti Tea Lounge. A tipster tells us that the folks behind the 8th Street Winecellar are hoping to take that space. They are expected to be on the April CB3/SLA committee agenda.
Here's a description of the place via New York:
Located below street level on a busy Greenwich Village block, this warm, unpretentious wine bar keeps oenophiles lingering with a helpful staff and shareable small plates of charcuterie and pigs in blankets. Owners Jonny Cohen and Michael Lagnese are veteran Union Square Café barkeeps—the T-shirt-clad duo are often caught behind the wood-accented bar, dropping an informed suggestion from their lengthy selection of affordable wines (no bottle over $100).
No word if they will change their name here to 4th Street Winecellar.
