Two weeks ago, Eater brought the troubling news that another swanky Bowery 2.0 restaurant is currently in the works for 245 Bowery (at Stanton). This, hot on the heels of McNally planting the flag of Pulino’s Bar and Pizzeria just up the block at the corner of East Houston.

And McNally might even be involved, though he’s since denied. The architect in charge of this project – Richard H. Lewis – is the same one used for Minetta Tavern. The plan is supposedly to expand into the basement, and to feed 150 on the main level. Now, the team of owners is ready to make nice with the community. Tomorrow night, they will hold a meeting at 10 Stanton Street to reveal their intentions and menu.

And next week, 245 Bowery will present their at the Community Board 3 SLA meeting. Doorway signs in the immediate environs confirm this. No sidewalk cafe or backyard garden dining is being sought, just a full liquor license. Perhaps it will be a Chinese restaurant of sorts? Gung hay fat choy means “Best wishes and Congratulations. Have a prosperous and good year.”
