Cochinita Dos to Open Lower East Side Outpost at 49 Canal

The easternmost sliver of Canal Street is truly starting to pop. While the Jarmulowsky Bank awaits its glorious return as an upscale Ace-managed hotel, its surroundings continue to follow suit. Catty corner to the iconic structure, a new Mexican joint is planned. One with ties to Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.

49 Canal Street, formerly Overseas Taste, was previously eyed by a group who wanted to continue the tradition of Malaysian cuisine at this address. It appears those plans fizzled. Up next is Cochinita Dos, the second iteration of the Brooklyn-based endeavor. According to paperwork submitted to Community Board 3, the applicant, Adam Frank, seeks a full liquor license, albeit limited to a service bar.

The proposal includes three tables with room for approximately thirty patrons. Hours sought are 10am-1am, all week. Frank will appear before CB3 next Monday to obtain permission to serve libations.

Cochinita Dos is the second applicant for 49 Canal Street in under two years.
