The Bowery Market, the open-air food hub that debuted last July, just scored another full-time vendor. Parantha Alley is set to open a food stall inside the former front lot of Downtown Auto & Tire. Its arrival is teased with a new mural on the Great Jones Street facade.

Parantha Alley is a veteran of the Brooklyn food fair scene, and has been slinging Indian fare for four years.

Its namesake offering originated in India, and consists of a flat piece of bread fried on a griddle. The flatbread is more like a snack, though, and is stuffed with various fillings, such as potatos, lentils, and vegetables.

Parantha Alley joins an embattled Bowery Market enterprise buyoyed by Bouhadana’s Sushi on Jones and Alidoro. The other three vendors didn’t make it through the year. As EV Grieve noted last month, the mini outposts of Champion Coffee, the Butcher’s Daughter, and Pulqueria all closed.

Below is a snapshot of their menu:
