Oyster City to replace Sliders on East 11th Street
Several readers have noted that Sliders, a self-described "modern-rustic themed sports restaurant," quietly closed in the middle of December at 647 E. 11th St. just west of Avenue C. Sliders opened for drinks in December 2013.
A new suitor is already lined up: An applicant going by Oyster City LLC. The name on the paperwork is Reed Adelson, an assistant general manager at Locanda Verde in Tribeca.
According to paperwork (PDF!) on the CB3 website, the restaurant will have 10 tables with a total of 38 seats as well as a 10-seat bar. The proposed hours are 5:30 p.m. to midnight, with a weekend brunch service from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. There's no other information at the moment regarding the menu or official name of the space.
Oyster City was originally on the December CB3/SLA committee meeting agenda seeking a full liquor license.

However, the applicant ended up withdrawing. Oyster City is on the January docket for a beer-wine license only. The applicant will not be appearing before the committee during Monday night's meeting.
