Chef John Daley Bringing Sushi Ko to 91 Clinton
For 91 Clinton Street, Djerden Burek was little more than a blip on the proverbial radar screen. Built as a satellite outpost of the Astoria-based brand on the frontiers of the Lower East Side, this “quickie closure” alum had a rocky start. A lacking customer base led to its fall in February 2012, nine months after first opening. The tiny storefront is ready to rise again, though.
Application materials submitted to Community Board 3 indicate that veteran blade-wielder John Daley (remember Sushi Uo?) will reprise duties at the forthcoming New York Sushi Ko restaurant here on Clinton Street. The cubbyhole storefront north of Delancey will only have room for a pair of small tables seating four, and a twelve-foot sushi bar with seven stools.
Daley and Sushi Ko seek a simple restaurant wine license for the establishment. Proposed hours of operation are 10 am – 2 am Monday through Friday, and 4 pm – 2 am Saturdays; closed Sunday.
And here’s a sample menu:
