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.
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.

Not since Velvet Underground has a banana polarized so. You may have seen the viral story about the banana fastened to a wall at Art Basel fetching $120,000 in the name of “art.” Back home on the Lower East Side, the locals have added their two cents about Maurizio Cattelan’s work (known for the golden […]
A 54-year-old man on a purported smoke break fell to his death Saturday from a six-story tenement on Eldridge Street, near Hester. Cops were called to the backyard of 54 Eldridge at about 9:15am, where officers found the man’s body sprawled on the ground. Witnesses told police that the victim had been smoking a cigarette […]
Given the gold rush mentality on the Lower East Side waterfront, it’s not surprising to see another bunkers development proposed. A so-called RiverArch all-purpose development to span the East River just north of the Manhattan Bridge. Conceived by Scott Baker, the futuristic plan is part bridge-part apartment building. The 96-story RiverArch would house thousands of apartments, a […]
GupShup owner Jimmy Rizvi isn’t headed to the Bowery, after all. His bid for another Indian restaurant at 245 Bowery failed this fall. Rizvi’s application for full liquor was heard by Community Board 3 back in September, but was instructed to return as the application was incomplete and further outreach needed. His no-show one month […]
The remodeled Seward Park is now open to the public. Completed in just about six months, this $6.4 million capital works project refreshed many of the deteriorating conditions of the park. And in arguably record timing. Improvements include new park furnishings, equipment, expanded garden area, and renovated library plaza. Yet probably the most significant change […]
The Beatles are headed to SoHo. Last week, the music press at large revealed that Sony Music Entertainment secured the North American merchandising rights to the Fab Four, and that a holiday pop-up is underway. The lucky neighborhood chosen for this marketing stunt is SoHo. The new store will be temporarily headquartered at 163 Mercer […]
Once an events space, always an event space. That’s the story at 48 Ludlow Street where a new one just opened. What was the Koala Farm studio for a brief moment is now SOMMwhere. It opened last weekend, pitching itself as a “stylish and sustainable escape” for your next shindig. The media advisory is longer […]
The onetime Amato Opera on the Bowery – renovated and upscaled years ago – will get a high-end sushi restaurant called Kissaki. Eater reported this week that former Gaijin chef-owner Mark Garcia is behind the 26-seat Omakase venture at 319 Bowery. The Omakase menu will cost $160 for twelve pieces of Nigiri and four kaiseki-style […]
A man and his girlfriend were caught on camera Thanksgiving night while stealing a locked bike inside an Orchard Street apartment, the victim tells us. Surveillance video from inside 78 Orchard shows a couple enter the building – perhaps buzzed in by a neighbor – then pause for a moment. In a cavalier move, the […]
