The official website has been static for months, but don’t let the inaction lead you astray. Hair of the Dog is thisclose to opening at 170 Orchard Street. Contractors onsite wouldn’t confirm a concrete launch date, but did say that it’ll be serving in time for NFL Sundays. Makes sense. A sports bar in the vein of other NYC Best Bars, this puppy needs the revenues from the start of football season ( first game is tonight). SPORTS BAR!

Exterior developments at 170 Orchard during these last months have been subtle yet significant. New ironwork lining the rooftop, recently-installed marquee mosaics, reconfigured entrance, and updated retractable awnings. Although even more telling, the arrival of flat-screen televisions yesterday morning.

In addition, a blog-friendly tear in the window shades revealed a slice of the interior and a peek at the chalkboard menu. It features everything you might guess and some you wouldn’t – grilled cheese, salads, wraps, wings, etc.

Cafe Charbon officially vacated the Lower East Side fifteen months ago after its owner sold the business. The liquor license for 170 Orchard was transferred to the nightlife team that operates frat-boy havens across town – Jake’s Dilemma, Off the Wagon, 13th Step, 3 Sheets Saloon.
