Ummburger vying for the Mancora space on 1st Avenue

A group of applicants is looking to bring Ummburger to 99 First Ave. at Sixth Street, the current home of the Peruvian restaurant Mancora.

According to the public documents (PDF here) on file ahead of this month's CB3-SLA agenda for a new liquor license, this is a sale of assets.

Ummburger is described as a "fast casual restaurant in the style of a gourmet burger bar." The application shows proposed daily hours of 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. The configuration shows 16 tables seating 66 guests with one, six-seat bar.

The 31-page questionnaire also includes a sample menu as well as professionally produced materials that include "Concept inspiration and mood board."

Well, if you're in the mood for burgers... here's a look at the sample menu on file...

... there are a variety of burgers, including a vegetarian option ... and a fried chicken sandwich called the Southern Ummfort...

The enclosed materials state that the restaurant plans to open on May 15.

Mancora opened here in March 2003. Here's how the Times described it in a 2004 feature:

Mancora caters to East Villagers, and a raucous subset of them at that. Its jaunty room, an explosion of seashell chandeliers, octopus murals and fish nets, is buoyant with sangria-sipping crowds and South American soundtracks, especially on weekends.

The April SLA committee meeting is April 13 at 6:30 p.m. Location: The Thelma Burdick Community Room, 10 Stanton St. at the Bowery.
