Remains of Festival Mexicana Hauled Away

120 Rivington Street

Today workers are hauling away what’s left of the interior of Festival Mexicana at 120 Rivington Street. No official word what’s happening here. Back in June, David Shemesh (Antibes Bistro) went before Community Board 3’s SLA Committee, outlining plans for a restaurant serving American food (yes, a bit vague). He wanted approval to operate between the hours of 10 a.m.-4 a.m. seven days a week.  CB3 ended up voting against the proposal because Shemesh did not show at the full board meeting to sign “stipulations” mandating shorter hours.  Anyone with more intel? Please let us know!
