‘Talde’ Team Tapped for 4 Separate Nightspots at Joie de Vivre Hotel on the Bowery

Just yesterday, we were talking about the future of Jing Fong Restaurant vis-a-vis owner Alex Chu. While the landlord will likely demolish this “Chinatown Arcade” sometime in the next couple years, the real attention is still at the long-in-the-works Joie de Vivre hotel next door at 50 Bowery.

According to the paperwork filed with Community Board 3 this week, Brooklyn-based chefs Dale Talde, David Massoni, and John Bush are opening a restaurant empire inside this Bowery lodge. The team (aka Three Kings Restaurant Group) – known for hits like Talde, Thistle Hill, and Pork Slope – will operate four separate nightspots inside the 22-story building.

Here’s a brief breakdown of what to expect, courtesy of the application materials on file. Liquor licenses are likely a shoo-in, as this is a hotel. Also, we’re told by their PR arms that the contract was finalized for 50 Bowery this week.

Second Floor Breezeway

This second-floor establishment doesn’t serve food. Bar only. There’s an outdoor space for drinking. Private events will be held here.

Green Lady

This restaurant is on the ground floor, and will boast occupancy for 119 people. It’s only open for dinner. Dance floor and DJs are in the plans, so a cabaret license is required. Menu is dim-sum, but light on the dumplings. (See menu below.)

Rice and Gold

Rice and Gold apparently joins Green Lady on the ground floor. This restaurant seats 218 people and includes an outdoor area.

Rooftop, name unknown

This rooftop bar on the nineteenth floor is the crown jewel, serving a nebulous menu of “New York street food.” Square-footage is split between indoor and outdoor areas.  Decor is reportedly a theme inspired by the skyline view and New York parks, including replica lampposts, park benches, and metal tables. Menu is hot dog based, served from a vintage stand.


Team Talde will appear before the SLA subcommittee of Community Board 3 later this month for approval. It proves to be one of the hotter items on the agenda. Expect turnout (i.e. opposition) from Chinatown.
