Cholo Noir wants to bring Mexican BBQ and art to East 6th Street
Plans are in the works for a restaurant serving "Mexican-style BBQ" with a gallery space at 503 E. Sixth St. near Avenue A.
The proprietors, Lennard Camarillo and Arlene Lozano, will appear before CB3's SLA committee on Monday for a new liquor license for the space.
According to the questionnaire (PDF) posted at the CB3 website, the proposed hours for Cholo Noir are 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday-Friday with a noon-time opening on Saturday and Sunday. The questionnaire shows a configuration with 15 tables accommodating 45 diners as well as a 12-seat bar.
In 2014, Camarillo and Lozano won the New York Public Library's annual business plan competition, scoring the top prize of $15,000.
No. 503 was home for five weeks to Long Bay, a Vietnamese restaurant, last spring. Several years earlier the space housed Gladiators Gym.
The CB3 SLA committee meeting is Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the Thelma Burdick Community Room, 10 Stanton St. (corner of the Bowery).
