Here are a few of the applicants who are scheduled to appear virtually tonight during CB3's SLA Committee meeting... (we already covered the return of the Brindle Room here).
• Milk Burger, 321 E. Houston St. (Questionnaire here)
The quick-serve burger joint with an outpost in the Bronx is slated for this block of East Houston between Attorney and Ridge (storefront photo above from a few weeks back).
Erik Mayor, an East Harlem native, opened his first Milk Burger in that neighborhood (since closed, and there was some early drama there). He's seeking a full liquor license for this spot,
El Maguey y La Tuna closed here in 2018 after the landlord reportedly doubled the rent.
• Salang Group LLC, 225 Avenue B (Questionnaire here)
A bar-restaurant serving an omakase menu is applying for a liquor license for the second-level space between 13th Street and 14th Street that currently houses the closing-soon Pouring Ribbons.
The still-unnamed establishment is proposing daily hours of 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. with the occasional jazz musician or two for entertainment, per the questionnaire online for the public.
As for Pouring Ribbons, their last week of service is March 23-26, per Instagram.
• E. Village Bar, 153 First Ave. (Questionnaire here)
Brooklyn Dumpling Shop founder Stratis Morfogen is opening a rock club here at the former Coyote Ugly between Ninth Street and 10th Street. (The questionnaire on file at the CB3 website lists the establishment's name as E. Village Bar while the New York Post called it E.VIL Rock Club in an article last fall.)
This concept dates back to 2017 (another flashback here) when E.VIL had designs on 64 Third Ave. (later going to the Ainsworth).
In any event, E.VIL 2022 has proposed daily hours of 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. in a room with a maximum occupancy of 110.
The public meeting meeting starts tonight at 6:30 via Zoom. Or by Phone: +1 646 518 9805, +1 929 205 6099 (Meeting ID: 921 9931 7942)
