Plywood arrives on 11th Street outside Danny Meyer's incoming restaurant Martina
While here on 11th Street at Third Avenue... workers yesterday erected the plywood on 11th Street outside the under-construction new restaurant from Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group.
Martina is the working name for the space, which is in the former lobby of Eleventh and Third, the 12-floor residential building here.
The group applied for a beer-wine license last November (they were approved). The application (PDF!) on file at the CB3 website showed that the space will hold 13 tables with a sidewalk cafe with four tables. (The overall capacity was listed at 75 or below with nine employees.) The proposed hours were 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday; until 1 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.
In approving the applicant, the CB3 minutes refer to Martina as "a full-service pizza restaurant."
