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.
Here’s an update from the battlefield, where B&H Dairy continues its post-explosion pursuit to finally reopen at 127 Second Avenue. The dispatch comes courtesy of Andy Reynolds, East Village resident and ad-hoc advocate for B&H. June 29 B&H and City Hall update, following an email exchange between me and Susan Stetzer, District Manager, Community Board 3, […]
With his power gutted in Albany, ex-Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has returned home. He is popping up everywhere on the Lower East Side these days, from Lunar New Year celebrations to award ceremonies and ribbon cuttings. These high-profile maneuvers are a calculated effort to whitewash his recent indictment on federal corruption charges in order to […]
Mum has been the word at 165 Chrystie Street ever since Master Kitchen Supplies relocated across the park to the 38 Delancey condoplex. When scaffolding arrived onsite at the end of last year, it was the first sign of certain change. In fact, a ten-story tumor is on its way to the mid-block parcel. ODA-Architecture […]
The low-key block of Broome Street between Orchard and Ludlow is seeing a whole lot of activity these days. Commercial stock is currently in transition, all while works on Essex Crossing Site 1 ramps up. We saw Munch Gallery depart the scene earlier this year and Kottu House take up residence. Local favorite Jin Sushi is […]
23 Essex Street – across from Seward Park – is an address that now carries two ethnic restaurants in its base. We touched upon newcomer Sam’s Spring Roll, which began serving its namesake menu last week. And now another. Taco Recipes is coming to the dance floor; its signage was hoisted yesterday. Little is known, […]
Well that was quick. A year after assuming the head position in the 7th Precinct, Commanding Officer Captain Joseph Simonetti has been transferred crosstown. Rather suddenly, in fact. He’s now the CO of the 6th Precinct, which is responsible for Greenwich Village and points west. Simonetti reportedly assumed this new post on Friday afternoon. We’ve […]
The troubled police procedural Unforgettable is back in production as we speak, and will be filming scenes on the Lower East Side today. Those obligatory “no parking” signs cordon off the area surrounding East Houston and Essex Streets. Unforgettable has been rather, well, forgettable. CBS canceled the show twice during its four-year run. Cable network […]
With the recent sale of Streit’s Matzo factory for $30.5 million and its forthcoming departure, speculation on the block of Rivington Street between Clinton and Suffolk, will only increase. Case in point, the stout mixed-use building across the way. The one that often has some sort of storefront psychic. Silvershore Properties just scooped up 149 […]
Meatball Shop co-founder Michael Chernow is stepping out of the box to helm Seamore’s, a new seafood restaurant in Little Italy. Well, the waiting is over. Plywood was shed, signage hoisted, and windows scrubbed. The establishment opens tonight at 390 Broome Street, exhibiting one of the quickest turnarounds from concept to completion that we’ve seen. […]
Six years after its debut in the West Village, the Organika wine bar team is headed east. An expansion of sorts, albeit with an artistic bent. Last month, ownership (i.e. Jairo Barros) submitted application materials to Community Board 3 for a new concept at 43 Clinton Street (south store), previously home to urban outfitters Coat […]
