Ray's Pizza & Bagel Cafe owner eyes new concept for 2 St. Mark's Place

The owner of Ray's Pizza & Bagel Cafe on Third Avenue and St. Mark's Place has plans to open an Italian restaurant-bar in the adjacent space at 2 St. Mark's Place...   
Efthymios Papadopoulos will appear before CB3's SLA committee tonight for a new liquor license for the currently empty restaurant. The online application (link here) shows that the establishment would have 12 tables for 40 guests and a 12-seat bar. The proposed hours are 11:30 a.m. to 4 a.m. daily.

The previous tenant at 2 St. Mark's Place, Eliza's Local, didn't make it out of the pandemic, closing late last summer after a little more than 18 months in business. 

Before Eliza's, No. 2, next to the entrance of the St. Marks Hotel, was previously Ayios Greek Rotisserie, which quietly closed at the end of 2017 after 16 months in business. St. Mark's Ale House had a 21-year run until July 2016. And once upon a time, it was the second location of the Five Spot Cafe.

Tonight's virtual CB3-SLA committee meeting starts at 6:30. Find the Zoom link here.

Someone should ask him why it there no prices listed at Ray's Pizza? These guys behind the counter make up different prices all the time - joke

I almost prefer a bagel pizza to a *real* slice.
