Goat Town’s Nick Morgenstern Eyeing 100 Stanton for Cafe

Nicholas Morgenstern, proprietor of the popular Goat Town in Alphabet City, is looking to cross Houston and into Hell Square. The restaurateur is swooping in on 100 Stanton Street not too long after the five-year-old D’Espresso closed shop, and bringing something similar. Another coffee spot.
Later this month, Morgenstern will appear before the SLA subcommittee of Community Board 3 to gain favor for a wine and beer license. Application materials indicate that the small, still unnamed cafe will sport one bar and a six-foot counter with three stools. Hours of operation are presently pegged at 8 am – 11 pm daily. Seems pretty modest, but it’s yet another heretofore unlicensed establishment in this over-saturated zone (i.e. resolution area) that seeks booze permissions. Soon, every store will have a liquor license.
