New Latin Bistro-Lounge for 106 Rivington Street
Mid-May 2011 was the proverbial day the music died at 106 Rivington Street. For twenty-two years under the radar, the sub-level storefront beside Economy Candy offered specialty services as a neighborhood recording studio and practice space. And a popular one at that. But like so many unique Lower East Side businesses these days, it shuttered in the face of gentrification.
Its replacement is most certainly nightlife-driven. Indeed, the guys behind local bodega chains Stop 1 Deli and E&S Wholesome Foods plan to gut the joint and establish a bilevel upscale bistro-slash-lounge.
Principals helming the as-yet-unnamed venture are slated to appear before Community Board 3 later this month to vie for a full liquor license. Privileges for a space located within a resolution area. Menu items reportedly consist of Latin-themed edibles like “Bodega Fish Tacos,” grilled sirloin steak, and pork chops.
Documents delivered to CB3 include some thirty pages of resident endorsements. Hundreds of local signatures in favor of additional nightlife here.
