Tiny Fork Announced for Slipper Room Building on Orchard
This next Lower East Side bite is nearly two years in the making. We clearly remember the night Rob Shamlian and Frank Vivolo held an informational sesh outside Rosario’s Pizza regarding the raw bar concept for 167 Orchard Street (aka 87 Stanton). At the time, the old Slipper Room was amidst demolition, and talk of new businesses in an unbuilt structure seemed strange. Nevertheless, the time has arrived for this so-called “Project 6.”
The Slipper Room should open any day now, and its ground level space remains earmarked for Shamlian. What’s more, Time Out New York dropped the early word on the proper identity – Tiny Fork. There’s not much in the way of additional details, though. It’s slated for a late-October launch. The on-premise liquor license is still pending approval by the State Liquor Authority.
And the bandwagon of seafood joints opening on the Lower East Side is getting too crowded. Tiny Fork will join the ranks of newcomers…
Rob Shamlian owns Spitzer’s Corner and Los Feliz on Ludlow; Frank Vivolo owns Bruschetteria on Rivington.
