Looks like yet another Brooklyn-based eatery is making the jump to the Lower East Side. Following in the footsteps of Williamsburg Pizza, the Pies ‘n’ Thighs hub of comfort food on South 4th is angling to open in Chinatown. At 43 Canal Street, to be precise. This location will carry nine tables with nineteen seats.
As such, Pies ‘n’ Thighs is currently on the April SLA docket. Its application was fast-tracked through Community Board 3 for approval as part of a new initiative to speed up the monthly marathon meetings. In this case, it’s a wine and beer license with closing times of midnight all days. This is one of the criteria for said approvals [PDF].
This development is more evidence that the area in the immediate vicinity of the new Jarmulowsky Bank hotel is starting to pop. It’s like a hyperlocal gold rush on a three-block stretch of pavement.
The Egg Shop was the last endeavor to try its hand at 43 Canal, but those plans ultimately petered out.
