Stanton Street Kitchen didn’t even survive at 178 Stanton St. for a full year. The beer-centric restaurant closed in the early summer after a big, pricey buildout of the former Moldy Fig jazz club space. Now there’s a new venture giving this location a shot.

In the Times, Florence Fabricant reports that Lowlife will open Monday, a collaboration between Alex Leonard (formerly of Blanca) and Hugh Crickmore (formerly of Mas Farmhouse). Here’s what you can expect:

The food bears influences from Eastern Europe (borscht with trout roe) to the Far East (chicken grilled yakitori-style over binchotan charcoal). Many vegetables come from the Neversink Organic Farm in the Catskills, owned by Mr. Crickmore’s brother, Conor.

Eater had more details from Crickmore in September:

The restaurateur says that the food here will be “aggressively seasonal” and “aggressively local.” Lowlife will offer an a la carte menu in the dining room, but the space will also have a 10-seat counter for tasting menus. Crickmore promises that the wine list will include a lot of selections under $100, including natural wines and older bottles… In case you’re wondering about that name, it’s a reference to both the book by Luc Sante and the album by New Order.
