Momofuku-French Louie vets opening BARA on East 1st Street

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.

That block is dead as a doornail. Good luck to the entrepreneurs.

I guess if I had to choose between between another foodie eatery and a sports bar... I would choose a shoe repair shop.

I can't wait for this place to open said nobody. More of the same.
