The Peels sign has come down at the future home of Bar Primi on the Bowery
An EVG reader asked what was going on over at Peels, where workers removed the former restaurant's sign back on Friday…
Peels closed on Jan. 22 after three-plus years in business.
As Eater first reported, restaurateurs Andrew Carmellini, Josh Pickard and Luke Ostrom will open a casual Italian restaurant here called Bar Primi … with a possible summer opening date.
Paperwork filed ahead of last month's CB3/SLA meeting showed that Bar Primi will have 22 total tables, seating 94 people as well as two bars good for 41 seats. (They also plan to have an outdoor cafe, just like Peels.) CB3 ultimately OK'd the new license.
