Matt Shendell Opening New Nightspot at Allen & Delancey?
Despite closing last month after a rocky two years in business, the saga of Allen & Delancey continues. As it stands, the May SLA docket reveals a tandem of ambiguous corporations (“Corp to be formed” and “Allen & Delancey Restaurant Corp”) seeking a full liquor license for the space, located at 115 Allen Street. But there’s more to this story – a rumor has recently surfaced that nightlife baron Matt Shendell is behind the new entity.

We received the following intel from a concerned reader yesterday:
please help – i hear that Matt Shandell, owner of Proof, The Hill and The Ainsworth is looking into the old Allen & Delancey spot. I don’t want another frat house bar in the Lower East Side. I also hear he is applying for a 4am liq. lisc. we should protest this. We don’t want Murray Hill invading the LOWER EAST SIDE!
If proven true, will this nightspot be “synonymous with excellent service and a top-notch dining and drinking experience” like all Paige Management ventures?
