Just as the Leadbelly oyster house is getting started down on Orchard Street (it opened yesterday), team Fat Radish is already looking to develop its next Lower East Side project. That much is clear after perusing the Community Board 3 SLA docket for September. Their corporate entity, Silkstone, is listed as one of the applicants for a wine and beer license at 22 Orchard. The longtime Chinese businesses here are seemingly on a month-to-month, as leasing signs arrived earlier this summer.

Benjamin Towill and Philip Winser will present their argument on Monday evening for Two Good Traders, a new restaurant specializing in “Thai street food.” Documents released ahead of the marathon meeting reveal that there will be nineteen tables with two seats apiece, a twelve-foot bar with stools, and a food counter with seats around an “open kitchen.” Hours are at a modest 5:30 pm to midnight daily. If past is precedent, these guys probably won’t have a problem.

Sample menu was also delivered and made public, reproduced here. Seriously pricey:

With the addition of this third restaurant, Silkstone pretty much owns a monopoly on the dining scene between Hester and Canal Streets. Cheeky Sandwiches is the other holdout.
