Bar Chevere on Essex: The Sign and Charbon Planters
Cafe Charbon is long in the grave, but some of its remains have been scattered across the Lower East Side. Like one of the sidewalk planters outside 168 Orchard Street which disappeared a short time ago. But where did it end up?
Look no further than newly-christened Bar Chevere, the restaurant venture that replaced Peri at the doomed 179 Essex Street. The identifying factor is this particular planter which acted as a farewell forum of sorts for one Sharpie-toting vandal.
Meanwhile, Boogie reader OY sends along visual confirmation of the gaudy new yellow signage onsite, as well as the re-imagined interior. It’s definitely come a long way since Filthy McNasty’s. Have you patronized Bar Chevere? What do you think?
