Dirt Candy will be moving to Allen Street; will hold on to E. 9th St. space

Last night, CB3's SLA subcommittee OK'd a liquor license application for a Dirt Candy outpost at 86 Allen St. (BoweryBoogie has more on the meeting here.)

Chef Amanda Cohen has also signed the lease for No. 86, which will provide her team with much more space for their well-regarded vegetarian fare. We asked Cohen for a few details on what's next.

"We are hoping to open late next fall. We are planning on serving the same food that we served at the 9th Street location — it will be a vegetable restaurant," she said via email.

And what will become of the East Ninth Street location?

"We aren't sure what we are going to do with the old space. We are definitely going to keep it, but for now all we know is that it won't be a full-service restaurant."

Meanwhile, brokers for the nearby 119 Orchard St. were apparently quite excited about the new Dirty Candy. We spotted this listing back on Oct. 22 that names Dirt Candy as a (coming soon) neighbor even though Cohen hadn't signed at lease yet at Allen Street or secured liquor-license approval...

AMAZING! Congratulations to Amanda and the Dirt Candy crew.

Can't wait to visit the new space, hopefully more often since there will be more of chance to get a reservation.

I ate at Dirt Candy once and am not eager to go back. My dish was so oily I could hardly taste the food which was a real shame because I had heard such great things about this place. I hope the proprieters/chefs read this and take note.

When I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify
