Here are a few scant details about chef Alex Stupak's new venture on St. Mark's Place
If you are looking for more details about chef Alex Stupak's new restaurant at the former Sushi Lounge space, then you will be mildly disappointed in the paperwork filed ahead of this month's CB3/SLA meeting. There aren't too many clues about what's coming here, other than the number of tables, etc.
Stupak, who runs the well-regarded Empellón Cocina and Empellón Taqueria, plans to open his third restaurant here at 132 St. Mark's Place at Avenue A, where the Sushi Lounge closed at the end of October.
According to the documents on file (PDF!) on the CB3 website, the unnamed new restaurant has proposed hours of 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily… there are 18 tables with 48 seats, one bar with eight seats … plus an "open kitchen with dining counter."
And here is a sketch of the interior layout that accompanied the CB3 materials…
Stupak told Eater on Dec. 23 that he hasn't decided on the concept for the space just yet.
The CB3/SLA committee meeting takes place next Monday night at 6:30.
