APL Adds Awning to 146 Orchard Street
Another week, another development at 146 Orchard Street. Last week, we brought news that Top Chef alum Camille Becerra was set to launch her “urban American” cuisine concept called APL. Though the nightspot is still in a so-called closed preview mode, it will reportedly open later this month. In the meantime, there’s some new exterior flare to report.
Yesterday afternoon, a crew of laborers installed a subtle black awning which boasts the address. Pretty standard issue. However, is it just us, or does the new fixture somewhat resemble a (hipster?) mustache? The windows above act as eyes, the fire escape a nose, and the entrance a mouth. And there you have it, peeps, the face of 146 Orchard Street! Literally.
But anyway, we digress. The thin red skin remains taped to the glass paneling, behind which sits a dining room enveloped in darkness. But peek through the windows, and you’ll catch a glimpse of Shepard Fairey’s custom wallpaper job.
