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.
You may recall artist Mark Panzarino from his noteworthy chalk renderings in Union Square and the like; now he’ll be dazzling passersby with some glitzy fashion and spoken word art at Grand Central Station. The new public art installation is called ‘Marquis America’, and will be eye catching, to say the least. Bedecked with tens […]
In a quick turnaround from conception to completion, Baby Brasa is now open at 129 Allen Street. Soft launch was announced last weekend. Baby Brasa is a Peruvian rotisserie snack shop that offers an “intimate eating experience” via open-floor plan, in which chef and patron share the space. In this case, the culinary master is […]
Bari Restaurant Equipment just enlarged its Bowery footprint. In a huge way. The long-running business purchased two adjacent buildings this month in one fell swoop. The three-story commercial property at 234 Bowery and the mixed-use 5 Prince Street. The deal was worth $12.3 million. F&R Realty was listed as buyer, but this is actually the […]
Clinton Street wasn’t too kind to the Yunnan Kitchen/BBQ restaurant. The farm-to-table Chinese restaurant will shutter on Thursday (June 30) after four years on the block. It’s just another victim in a line of foodie havens that have unsuccessfully tried to make it work here. Yunnan Kitchen opened in 2012, having replaced the beloved Lucky […]
Picture Depression-era New York. Wait, you don’t have to because he took the pictures for you – Weegee a.k.a Usher Fellig. The man who earned his name based on an uncanny, clairvoyant-like ability to beat police to crime scenes…as if he knew…Ouija. He did, however, live across from the old police headquarters and owned a […]
The saga of Prosperity Dumpling continues this week with news of an imminent relocation to Brooklyn. Restaurant rep Robin Chang tells us that the reincarnated outpost will open far afield at 2369 86th Street in Bensonhurst. Proverbial tail between legs. It’s now nearly a year since that one headline last summer kickstarted a downward spiral […]
The B in 2B is revealed. Last week, we exclusively uncovered the “off-site” kitchen Happy Ending allegedly employs for food preparation in its controversial club. Specifically, to shuttle dishes back and forth from the main room to an apartment on the second floor via elevator. One former neighbor, who previously lived across the hall from this purported […]
Legendary Lower East Side performance artist Reverend Jen has been evicted from her Orchard Street home. This apartment also doubles as the location of the popular Troll Museum. No longer. Building owner, and all around reviled landlord, Misrahi Realty, wielded some muscle by pushing Rev Jen curbside this week. It was reported that she hadn’t paid rent […]
This is the epilogue of a well-tread story about how rent regulated tenants are exploited for the future value of gentry. Same old shit for the one and only Mr. Samy Mahfar. SMA Equities purchased 113 Stanton Street back in 2014, and spent the ensuing two years renovating the upstairs units and roof. All at […]
Seven years after its arrival, the restaurant supply company at 202 Bowery is now gone. Amazing Value Restaurant Equipment, as the business is aptly entitled, fled the gold coast last week. We’re told that the operation relocated to Brooklyn. A leasing sign in the window points to Jan Sasson’s brokerage handling the store now. Word […]
