After months of renovations, local proprietor Bill Wall tells us he’ll be opening his new restaurant and bar, Saluggi’s, to the public tomorrow (Saturday).
For the time being, it’s drinks only (there’s a full bar). Once Wall is able to resolve some issues with gas service, the full food menu will debut.
The new spot at 399 Grand St. is a hybrid of two popular Tribeca establishments — Saluggi’s Pizza and longtime dive bar Nancy’s Whiskey. On the Lower East Side, there’s an 18-foot bar running the length of the restaurant plus shuffleboard. Saluggi’s East is taking over the space formerly occupied by the Comfort Diner and Noah’s Ark Deli.
Saturday hours will be noon to 2 a.m.
