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.
