More change is expected in the lighting district down on Bowery and Broome, with another of the Sohotel storefronts poised to become a restaurant. Sitting just east of the Randolph twins, Bitsy Bardot will have a go at 341 Broome Street. Applicant Jan Sasson, principal of real estate management company Sasson Property Group, will appear before the SLA committee of Community Board 2 Tuesday evening to obtain an on-premise liquor license.

Signs were pasted along the lower stretch of the Bowery earlier this week for some last-minute community outreach before the meeting. A time when few people are in town.  Anyway, we learned that the Bitsy Bardot is more of a symbiotic restaurant that would cater to guests staying in the Sohotel. After all, the lodge has no food options. The plan is to serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner (7 days), and be closed on the “early” side.

Menu includes steak, burgers, fish, and chicken options alongside salads and sandwiches.

If it’s met with approval, the concept would open sometime in the ambiguous fall months.
