Plywood Arrives at Kristin Vincent’s Bowery Seafood Joint

Posted on: December 6th, 2012 at 6:09 am by

Time has come to crack open the storefront of 173 Bowery (aka 1 Delancey) for the proverbial pearl within. Or in plain English, construction is presently underway on the umpteenth oyster house here on the Lower East Side; it’s around the corner from the forthcoming Boil at 139 Chrystie and Grey Lady. It starts.

As first reported, Kristin Vincent, operator of seven-year-old Home Sweet Home, is opening a seafood venture in this enormous space (“Seven Delancey Oyster Bar”). The former Lighting Craftsman and its neighbors to the east are being combined as we speak. Plywood wrapping recently boxed the corner to shield the complete gutting of the interior.

Plans for the nightspot were ultimately approved by Community Board 3 in August, provided Ms. Vincent adheres to certain stipulations. Like serving food all hours, until 4am, and will “minimize patron noise” outside the establishment.

The application is pending with the State Liquor Authority.
