Nightlife Notes: Liquor License Applications

Black Tree Sandwich Shop, a veteran of the New Amsterdam Market and currently serving out of a Brooklyn bar, will open as a proper restaurant on Orchard Street.

The liquor licensing subcommittee of Community Board 3 meets Monday night to consider this month’s round of alcohol permit applications. A few noteworthy agenda items now have some details posted online (see below). The presentations by applicants begin at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 19 at the JASA/Green Residence, 200 E. Fifth St. (at Bowery). Read the full agenda here.

131 Orchard St.: Matthew Roff, Macnair Sillick and Anthony Spangler plan to open Black Tree, a sandwich shop, in a former retail store. The proprietors have peddled their sandwiches, featuring locally sourced ingredients, at events such as the New Amsterdam market. The Orchard Street restaurant will be their first permanent brick-and-mortar restaurant. They plan to be open until midnight during the week and 2 a.m. on weekends, with 10 tables seating 20 diners. They are applying for a full bar permit. Roff is the principal in four other establishments with active licenses, including Brooklyn’s The Crown Inn, where Black Tree’s sandwiches are also served.

269 E. Houston St.: Matthew Abramcyk of Tiny’s and Super Linda is applying to take over the former home of music club Local 269, which shuttered recently. Abramcyk and partner Franco Vlasek plan to offer “light food” and be open until 4 a.m. seven days a week serving beer, wine and liquor. Their plan includes two bars, one upstairs and one downstairs, each seating 12 people, plus 18 tables hosting 46 seats.
