Nine-month-old Rosette is officially donezo, having served its last supper at East Broadway Saturday night. Its successor is Danny Bowien, who is finally reviving Mission Chinese Food, albeit way below Delancey. Mice and building violations forced the restaurant from 154 Orchard Street nearly a year ago; it also resulted in Bowien filing a $500,000 lawsuit against the landlord.

Bowien and Mission Chinese Food will appear before Community Board 3 this evening (as Andrew Yang?) to score full liquor privileges. While the space already carries a 4am license vis-a-vis Rosette, the proprietor reportedly worked with the nearby SPaCE block association on more truncated hours. So this’ll likely sail through the committee.

It seems that with each successive month, the old Jewish Lower East Side becomes less a frontier and more a destination in the minds of the mainstream. The Zelda map is opening up, quickly ushering in an unfamiliar phase of nightlife saturation for this area.

And how can we forget the Ace-backed Jarmulowsky hotel, which opens in a couple short years.
