CB3 Wire: New Bars Proposed, Approved

At Cheeky's Sandwiches on Orchard, you can soon get a beer with your po' boy.

Community Board 3’s October meeting agendas will be released later today. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the Lower East Side restaurants going for liquor licenses when the SLA Committee convenes Oct. 17.

A place called Yunnan Kitchen is applying for a wine and beer license at 79 Clinton St., where Falai Panetteria is currently located. As we have reported, there’s some speculation that the Italian bakery might move into a larger space in the same building. Owner Iacopo Falai told the Times he would keep the cae open, while closing the more formal Falai Restaurant a few doors to the north on Clinton Street.

An establishment named “Salita” is apparently taking over another space on the neighborhood’s so-called “restaurant row.”  They’re looking for a full liquor license at 60 Clinton St., where Spanish restaurant 1492 is now. The space, incidentally, boasts one of the LES’s more inviting backyard gardens.

The troubled storefront at 189 East Houston (most recently Masala Twist) is about to get a new tenant. “HSC Clam” will be going for a wine and beer license.
