On 2nd Avenue, Calexico in the works with Brick Lane Curry House on the move
The owners of Calexico, the Cal-Mex burrito-beer chainlet, is vying for the current Brick Lane Curry House space at 99 Second Ave.
Brothers Brian, Dave, and Jesse Vendley are on tonight's CB3-SLA agenda for a new liquor license for No. 99, which is between Fifth Street and Sixth Street...
The questionnaire posted to the CB3 website (PDF here) shows proposed hours of 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily. The layout features 15 tables inside and six tables for a sidewalk cafe ... plus a 14-seat bar.
Calexico currently has a handful of NYC locations (Upper East Side, Greenpoint, Park Slope, Red Hook, among them) as well as in Detroit — and Bahrain.
As for Brick Lane Curry House... there is an unconfirmed rumor on the block that they will relocate a block to the south... to the former Heart of India storefront...
Brick Lane Curry House made the move from Sixth Street to 99 Second Ave. in August 2014.
The August CB3-SLA meeting is tonight at 6:30 in the Perseverance House Community Room, 535 E. Fifth St. between Avenue A and Avenue B.
