BarBacon looking at expanding to Avenue A
The proprietors of BarBacon are getting a head start on CB3's SLA committee meeting for December... paperwork is up in the front window at 171 Avenue A between 10th Street and 11th Street...
In case you don't dine on swine, here's more about BarBacon, which has an outpost on Ninth Avenue in Hell's Kitchen: "Bacon flights & other swine-spiked grub served in a gastropub setting with a large bar." (Read more about the place here.)
The meeting notices and applications aren't live just yet at the CB3 website. However, the paperwork on the door shows that the owners plan to use the hotly contested backyard patio.
The previous tenants here, both Chao Chao and Soothsayer, as well as B.A.D. Burger, were unable to secure a full-liquor license or back-patio usage.
CB3 had this to say in denying Soothsayer's full-liquor request:
"[T]he applicant proposed using the backyard area for dining, although no certificate of occupancy was provided to demonstrate the legality of the commercial use of the backyard and there had been numerous complaints from residents regarding commercial use of backyards in this neighborhood."
Updated 9 a.m.
See the comments for an update from CB3 District Manager Susan Stetzer. The meeting location has NOT been confirmed for December.
