Apotheke’s Heather Tierney Opening the Butcher’s Daughter at 19 Kenmare

Another day, another story about the ever-changing landscape of Kenmare Street just off the Bowery.
Before Cocktail Bodega became a reality, plans were already in the works for a juice bar at 19 Kenmare Street. Though, contrary to earlier reports, the venture is actually angling to open in the whitewashed cornershop. The location received a full-on makeover last year, including new facade and handicap accessibility. With the new look came a revolving door of pop-up concepts, offering its services to Openhouse gallery and a string of sample sales.
Now comes word that Heather Tierney is behind the venture. Grub St reports that the Apotheke/Pulqueria vet is to open “The Butcher’s Daughter,” a juice bar and vegan cafe concept to join the ever-growing Kenmare Club. The 700 square-foot joint will boast occupancy of 38 and early hours of operation. Under the corporate guise of Juicerie LLC, Tierney tried to obtain blessings from Community Board 2 for a wine-beer license, but was shot down twice. Once in June and then again in September. We’ll see how the state handles this application.
Timetable for opening was “later this month,” but that’s not gonna happen. Especially after peeking behind those paper drapes.
