Forcella Bringing Pizzeria to 168 Ludlow?
Hard to believe it’s been nearly two years since T-Poutine gambled and lost at 168 Ludlow Street. The concept was short-lived, having served the Canadian dish for a measly nine-month stretch. In that time, though, the restaurant managed to irk the neighbors with crowds and loud music. Requests for liquor licenses were categorically denied. The storefront sat empty until last month when paper window shades arrived, and a garbage bag was draped over the old marquee signage.
Here’s where it gets interesting. Yesterday afternoon, a snooping source alerted us to an advert in the window, which is essentially a public job listing for a mysterious new restaurant venture. The tipster claims that a pizzeria is vying for the space. This would make sense, especially since the interview location given for potential candidates is 334 Bowery, none other than the home of recently-opened Forcella.
If confirmed true, this would mark the third location for Forcella, and second on the Lower East Side.
