The Little Rascal Opens Tonight at 163 Elizabeth
Gone is the painted plywood and other assorted sidewalk-obstructing construction materials at 163 Elizabeth Street. The “Tokana Cafe,” professionally known as Little Rascal, is finally ready for action, now boasting a freshly-built facade with a blogger-friendly view of the interior. It’s been this way for weeks, flying totally under the radar, but last night was the soft launch for friends and family. According to the proprietors, the official opening is later tonight.
Here’s a quick daytime look inside the premises:
This Little Rascal was able to obtain beer and wine privileges from the State, but not without an interesting exchange with Community Board 2 last month. Grub St reported that one advisory committee member brought his wife and child to the 5-hour meeting to argue against another upscale drinking joint to join the Kenmare Club.
The childish guilt trip was futile.
