In the time since its luxury makeover in 2004, 115 Allen Street hasn’t been the most hospitable to the Lower East Side nightlife scene. In a short five-year span, the ground level space chewed and spat two much-hyped bar-restaurant concepts. Both Allen & Delancey and Mary Queen of Scots.

Allen & Delancey opened in October 2007, but had lots of dirty laundry to air in its short life. Chef changes, staff walkouts, lawsuits, and other drama. The establishment closed for good in March 2010. The Mary Queen of Scots gastropub opened inside 115 Allen a year later, but closed last May after eighteen months in business. Bright orange signs have been the new norm at the left-for-dead commercial space. But it’s being resuscitated.

Application materials submitted to Community Board 3 reveal that 115 Allen will remain a gastropub at the hands of Aron Watman and Billy Waite. A corporate entity called Hill and Dale Restaurant Group wants a go here, and is applying for on-premise privileges and nightly 4am closing times. These two dudes are behind the two-year-old Brooklyneer in the West Village.

And there’s already a winter menu available, which we’ve reproduced below:

    This is not a cute corner – it’s noisy and bare, dominated by a downmarket Subway. The space is cursed from years as a Salvation Army thrift store.
