The ‘Bowery Craft House’ to Replace Ariel’s Latin Bistro on Clinton Street

Posted on: January 5th, 2017 at 5:00 am by


For the third time in seven years, there will be a changing of the guard at the southwest corner of East Houston and Clinton Streets. Ariel’s Latin Bistro, which came on the nightlife scene in June 2014, is about to transition from Latin to Contemporary American stylings. Next up, something called the Bowery Craft House. (It’s ten blocks from the Bowery, FYI.)

According to their application to Community Board 3, unknown principals Michael Hrdlovic, Patrick Lane, and Joseph Montalto together seek a full liquor license for the 12-table establishment. The hope is to stay open between 11am and 3am daily. Menu, posted below, is pretty standard American food at modest price points.

The applicants will present their case before the SLA subcommittee next Monday for the the valuable advisory recommendation to the state.

Before this latest string of ill-fated eateries, 293 East Houston was the longtime home of the Clinton Restaurant. It was a popular locals spot for years, but eventually folded in 2010. A change of ownership brought on Pinalito, then later, Ariel’s Latin Bistro.
