The Precision barbershop at 129 Allen Street shuttered and relocated earleir this spring. It’s now down the block and with a rebranded identity, Allen Street Cut & Shave. In its place, a new restaurant.

A Peruvian restaurant by the name of Baby Brasa is on its way. Butcher paper is in the windows, signaling the commencement of remodeling. Also, ownership is on the Community Board 3 agenda this month for beer-wine privileges.

According to its website, Baby Brasa is a “lively, authentic Peruvian Rotisserie that offers an intimate eating experience where there are no walls between food lover and chef.” Meaning, an open-floor plan in which chef and patron share the space. In this case, the chef before you will be Franco Noriega.

The applicant was fast-tracked to approval as part of Community Board 3 process by which applicants agree to a standard set of strict stipulations.

A rep from the company tells us they plan to open in mid-May.
