Dim Sum Palace planned for 59 2nd Ave.
The owners of the two locations of Dim Sum Palace in Midtown are planning to open a similar establishment at 59 Second Ave. between Third Street and Fourth Street.
And they will be appearing before CB3's SLA committee tonight to apply for a new liquor license for this EV Dim Sum Palace.
The questionnaire on file at the CB3 website (PDF here) shows that the restaurant will open daily at 11 a.m. (Closing time is listed as 2 p.m., which is likely a mistake — unless they will open for just three hours a day.) The proposal calls for 15 tables seating 65 diners. The specs only reveal a service bar.
Until October 2015, the address was home to Allied Hardware, which was on a month-to-month lease with the building's owner until Icon Realty bought the property in early 2015.
The adjacent space (the former Alex Shoe Repair) is now Kona Coffee and Company, which opened this past November.
