T-Poutine Addresses Neighbors

T-Poutine is desperately seeking a beer and wine license from the State Liquor Authority. At last month’s Community Board 3 meeting, their request was denied on the grounds of noise complaints and lack of support (and signatures) from neighbors. Now the late-night grease pit has taken to Ludlow Street, canvassing the immediate vicinity with flyers that address locals’ concerns. T-Poutine is currently on the April docket.
The letter reads as follows:
As most of you know, we opened the restaurant T-Poutine, located at 168 Ludlow, about seven months ago. Coming from Montreal, we are proud to serve the French Canadian National Dish, Poutine. Since opening, we are pleased to have some of you as regular customers, making us feel welcome and a part of the community. As a small LES business, our goal is to maintain harmony amongst our neighbors, and hopefully become a neighborhood staple.
We are currently applying for a beer and wine license through the community board. During this process, we were informed there were a couple of complaints back in the Fall of 2009, concerning the noise of the late night business hours. Since that time, we have taken the following steps to correct this problem.
- All speakers were lowered from the original ceiling height.
- Speakers at the back of the restaurant are turned off after midnight, as well as reducing the base volume.
- Back door to remain closed and access limited to only dropping the garbage (which shouldn’t be more than once or twice per night).
- Cigarette breaks are no longer permitted in the backyard.
With spring here and summer fast approaching, we would like to reach out to our neighbors and continue to find ways for us to continue to work together. We would like to hear from you with any comments, questions or concerns. Please feel free to contact us with suggestions or ideas on how we can continue to be a valuable and contributing business in the neighborhood.
Con Artist is one of the few businesses on Ludlow Street in Hell Square that still caters to creativity. Something other than nightlife. What began as an ambitious basement workshop and thrift boutique in 2010 (formerly home to The Cast), is now a fully-fledged artist collective with storefront workspace and a membership counting in the […]
With Earth Day having just passed this week, the time seemed ripe to call attention to water waste down at the CitizenM project site on the Bowery. Ever since the towering permiter of plywood was erected at the corner of Delancey, the developers have been piping in water from the nearby fire hydrant for earth-moving efforts. […]
Apparently the Lower East Side Tenement Museum is in desperate need of care. The institution is deteriorating from the inside out, and requires a boatload of cash to keep the facility in workable shape. So, the museum is currently in crowdfund mode, soliciting funding to help preserve its prized mid-block building at 97 Orchard Street. […]
Now in its sixth iteration, the Hester Street Fair is welcoming the neighborhood back, with the promise of “New food! New vendors! New look! Same awesome vibe…” Once again, the corner of Hester and Essex Streets will corral local biz into a fancy farmer’s market, but it’s not setting up shop for the whole weekend. This […]
It appears Community Board 3 doesn’t want members to vocalize concerns about its controversial policies and actions. Ayo Harrington, whose whistleblowing crusade against Chair Gigi Li last year netted headlines, is no longer part of the advisory board. Appointments to Community Board 3 were announced earlier this week by Borough President Gale Brewer and her […]
The Indochina Sino-Amercian Community Center atop 36 Rivington Street (aka 170 Forsyth) will soon welcome a new neighbor below. Formerly a corner warehouse occupied by Lucky Fish NY, the ground level will change use from a commercial operation to that of an “integrated medical facility.” One that focuses on mental and physical health. Evolve Health + […]
It’s a real estate trend endemic of New York City these days. Landlords sit on retail vacancies for months, sometimes years, before filling the ranks. Some call it warehousing, and it’s hurting the neighborhood. Just walk down Orchard Street. One of said warehoused stores, a Misrahi-managed property, is now replaced. Any Old Iron fled 149 Orchard […]
Legendary NBA star David Robinson just scored a layup with a recent Lower East Side real estate acquisition. His company – the Admiral Capital Group – joined forces with Four Winds Real Estate to purchase a three-building portfolio at the corner of Ridge and Rivington. These contiguous properties had been on the market since May […]
That four-story Tristan Eaton mural above Allen Street – a co-branded effort with Guess commissioned by the Little Italy Street Art Project – mysteriously vanished overnight Tuesday. The ad-art, dubbed “Big City of Dreams,” was still in progress when, all of a sudden, the entire facade received a fresh coat of paint. Overwritten. However, outline […]
For independent bike shops across the city, it’s a cutthroat climate, thanks in large part to the proliferation of Citi Bike. But it’s not stopping upstart companies from entering the market. Like Gogo Gone on the Lower East Side. Gogo Gone opened last week on the second landing of 138 Eldridge Street. You wouldn’t know […]
