Dirt Candy Goes Big with Catchy Sequin Signage on Allen Street

Dirt Candy officially planted its identity at 86 Allen Street over the weekend with some over-the-top storefront signage. The pink-and-black lettering stretches the length of the marquee and is composed of sequins, giving it that eye-grabbing fluttering effect.
As for opening date, it’s still TBD, but likely by the end of the month. Chef-owner Amanda Cohen’s Instagram shows images of private wine tastings and other previews the last week or so. Not to mention, the all-important Con Ed gas hookup happened not too long ago.
Community Board 3 signaled its approval of a full liquor license for 86 Allen – formerly a bus depot – last year. The license is active as of Friday, according to State Liquor Authority records.
Amanda Cohen first opened the vegetarian Dirt Candy in the East Village back in 2008; the OG spot closed for good last August.
