• Avenue A Project LLC, 117 Ave A (op) (Odessa)

We're curious to see what is taking the space that belonged to the Odessa Cafe & Bar, which closed for business last Aug. 31. Previous plans for the space fell through.

Sidewalk Cafe Application
• Mama Bar LLC, 32 Ave B

New Liquor License Applications
• To be Determined, 600 E 14th St (op) (Alphabet Cafe)

Oh! A taker for the former Pudgie's-Nathan's-Arthur Treacher's action-packed combo!

Eater reported that Andrew Carmellini and business partners Luke Ostrom and Josh Pickard are opening a "casual pasta shop" called Bar Primi at the now-shuttered Peels.

The 24-hour restaurant closed for business after Sunday. The rumor is that bold-face namers Serge Becker and Josh Pickard are opening some kind of Southern-themed restaurant here.

New Liquor License Applications

My prediction - both will be some kind of fancy-schmancy grilles (please note the extraneous but apparently all-important "e" there) serving stuff like octopus tentacle tips in a pomegranate reduction, or other such absurdities.
