A new restaurant is in the works for the former Prima space at 58 E. First St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
Here are details via the BARA Twitter account:
BARA is a new French/Japanese tavern being opened in December by chef Ian Alvarez with cocktails and drinks from Kyle Storm.
And here is a draft copy of their menu via Instagram:
Alvarez, a former sous chef at Momofuku, most recently worked with Storm at French Louie in Brooklyn.
Prima closed in August after nearly three years on the block. In a refreshingly honest assessment, Prima owners said that they closed because they just weren't busy enough.
