325 Bowery, July 2013
Foodie freaks are drooling over news that the former Peels space at 325 Bowery will indeed become the next pet project for Andrew Carmellini, Josh Pickard, and Luke Ostrom. Eater, who first reported the rumor, confirmed yesterday that the new “casual pasta shop” is tentatively called Bar Primi.
Bar Primi should open sometime next summer, with an interior designed by former Peels proprietor Taavo Somer.
However, the new concept at 325 Bowery still needs to obtain a liquor license. The applicants filed to appear before Community Board 3 this month, but withdrew. They’ll likely return on the February SLA agenda.
Peels abruptly shuttered last week after nearly three years in business.
