Fashion Week is here, and a markedly different style hat is returning to Stanton Street. Think more fedora, less sombrero.

Indeed, the sequel to El Sombrero at 108 Stanton is just about ready to party. The one-story plywood shed – a fixture for three months – was deposed from the corner over Labor Day. It’s a more rustic vibe, with hulking wood planks dotted with a dozen lights; and lots of glass segments.

The old signage was repurposed for interior furnishings like a cabinet and table. In its place is a new, more streamlined logo which features a fedora. It’ll likely be illuminated signage, as electrical wiring is just waiting in the marquee for the additional hookup.

We are told by various restaurant personnel that opening is slated for Monday or Tuesday.

What do you think of the El Sombrero reboot?

While I may survive the COVID-19 pandemic, some of my friendships won’t. As xenophobia grips the masses, racist attacks and harassment against Asians are on the rise at home and abroad.
