Boticarios opens on 1st Street
Boticarios is up and running now at 58 E. First St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue...
Don't know too much about the restaurant at the moment. (The CB3 minutes from the September SLA committee meeting described it as a "Pan-Latin" restaurant.) The applicants have experience at Casa Mizcal on Orchard Street and the Black Ant on Second Avenue.
The restaurant has a Facebook page here and an Instagram account here.
And here's the menu posted on the front door...
Esperanto Fonda lasted nine months here, closing in May 2017. Before that, the First Street address was home to BARA for two years and Prima for three years. The Elephant, a Thai restaurant, was previously here for 17 years.
