More now on the restaurants/bars going before Community Board 3’s SLA Committee next month. The food blogs seized on item #28; Soho favorite, Ed’s Lobster Bar (see photo) is looking to take over Sachiko’s, the sushi spot at 25 Clinton Street. Owner Ed McFarland says the restaurant will not be a replica of the original on Lafayette, but an offshoot (he was not more specific). Here are some other noteworthy applications:

  • Downtown Dining LLC wants a full liquor license at 205 Chrystie Street. This is a controversial location. The club, 205, and the State Liquor Authority were engaged in a long legal dispute.
  • Two separate applications appear to have been submitted for 161 Ludlow, which recently morphed from Paladar to Imperial Tavern. The team behind Superdive had been trying to sell the restaurant.
  • A Casa Fox, 173 orchard, is going for a full liquor license (presently they only serve beer and wine). It;s going to be a tough sell, since the restaurant is located in a “resolution area,” a section of the neighborhood in which CB3 tries to restrict additional liquor licenses.
  • Gramercy Thai restaurant Rhong Tiam is applying for a full liquor license at 154 Orchard. Michael Huynh was supposed to be converting this place into a Thai/Vietnamese restaurant, after abandoning an Asian tacos concept and shuttering Bia Garden.”
  • Peels, 325 Bowery, is pining for a sidewalk cafe.
  • The Nom Wah Tea Parlor, newly renovated, is hoping for a beer and wine license.
