264 Bowery is a four-story tenement building sandwiched between two active restaurant supply companies – Globe Slicers to the north and Hawaii Restaurant Equipment to the south.  The narrow ground-level storefront has been dormant for years, but was once the home of Sosinna’s Cafe, an Ethiopian-Latin-Caribbean fusion joint, which originally opened back in mid-2001.

For the past year-and-change, though, a red Ripco real estate banner has been hanging from the marquee of 264 Bowery, advertising a “Prime Turnkey Space.” But now the sleepy storefront is waking from its long slumber.  Part of the McNally effect, perchance?  Pulino’s is only just a half-block north.  Anyway, Friday afternoon, the gates were up, and brokers were busy showing off the space to interested parties.  It won’t be long before a new restaurant opens here.
