Peter Kane looking to bring Out East to 6th Street
Veteran restaurateur Peter Kane (Bowery Meat Company, Stanton Social, Essex & Beauty, among others) is one of the applicants behind a new project in the works for 509 E. Sixth St. between Avenue A and Avenue B.
According to the paperwork (PDF) filed at the CB3 website ahead of tonight's CB3-SLA committee meeting, Kane and company are bringing "new American cuisine" to Out East.
The configuration for the two-level restaurant space shows 38 tables for 104 diners plus two small bars seating 16 people total. The proposed hours are 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday-Friday with an 11 a.m. opening on Saturday and Sunday.
The applicants are seeking a full liquor license for the premises. The space was previously home to the sketchy Kion Dining Lounge. As far as we can recall, the last tenant here was a pop-up bar from the folks behind the Buenos Aires Restaurant during the 2014 World Cup.
The July CB3-SLA committee meeting is tonight at 6:30 in the Thelma Burdick Community Room, 10 Stanton St. at the Bowery.
