‘L’Amico’ Backers Propose New Venue for Mysterious Jarmulowsky Bank Hotel

Posted on: July 26th, 2017 at 5:00 am by

Guess those alleged plans for “creative” commercial offices at the Jarmulowsky Bank Building – first disclosed last summer are no longer in the cards.

The Community Board 3 agenda for next month’s SLA applicants is revealing enough. It lists 9 Orchard Street (aka 54 Canal) on the docket for hotel license consideration. But that’s not all. There is also an application for a new venue (i.e. full liquor license) by a corporate entity called “Sixth Avenue Restaurant Management LLC.” Digging around public records reveals that this is most likely the same group pulling the strings at L’Amico and The Vine, two hotspots in the base of the Eventi Hotel located just south of Herald Square.

The crew, which counts L’Amico owner Laurent Tourondel as principal, seeks a full liquor license for the concept at 9 Orchard Street.

This begs the question of whether the Eventi has a stake in whatever is happening at the Jarmulowsky Bank. Our request for comment from DLJ Partners, owner of the property, was not immediately returned. However, their website talks about an “upscale independent hotel.” We’ll have more in the coming days, so stay tuned.

When Delancey Street McDonald’s Reopens, it’ll be Supersized on 2 Floors

Three months into major gut renovations, you would have no idea that McDonald’s served here for some two decades. Gone is the red-and-yellow branding (except a few “remodeling” signs), stripped from the marquee and replaced with plywood boards. But McDonald’s will indeed return to life in the coming months. Super-sized, at that. Indeed, take a […]
