Damn, that was quick. A month after Marly Building Supply dismantled its Delancey facility and vacated the Lower East Side, a noob is ready to take the torch. It should come as no surprise that it’s an eatery seeking a full liquor license.

According to application materials submitted to Community Board 3, an establishment called Doka Hot Pot is gunning for 141 Eldridge Street (aka 53 Delancey). Kin S. Ma is the principal, and seeks full liquor. The entire corner space. It’ll boast seventeen tables with fifty seats, a bar with ten stools, and serve until 3am daily (the basement is for storage and prep). Menu items include hot pot shabu meat, vegetable soups, and a selection of $15 cocktails.

This outpost of Marly Building Supply opened at 53 Delancey over a decade ago. The company’s flagship Meeker Avenue warehouse caught fire a year ago, resulting in a five-alarm blaze. It took 200 firefighters working in freezing conditions to extinguish the fire.
