Avenue C Restaurant coming soon to Avenue C
Signage is up now for Avenue C Restaurant, the name of the new establishment that's taking over the former Edi & the Wolf space at 102 Avenue C between Sixth Street and Seventh Street. (Thanks to Vinny & O for the photo from Saturday.)
We don't know much about this venture. In January, an applicant — listed as Rosey Kalayjian — appeared before CB3's SLA committee for a new liquor license for the space in what was described as a sale of assets. The CB3 materials cited the proposal as "an American restaurant" with hours of 11:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Kalayjian has previously managed restaurants in Westchester and NYC.
As for an opening date, someone wrote "coming soon" on the front window.
Edi & the Wolf — named for its executive chefs, Eduard "Edi" Frauneder and Wolfgang "the Wolf" Ban — closed in April after nine years in service due to "increasing operating costs," Eater reported.
