43 Canal Street, December 2016

If you were looking forward to another branded outpost of Mission Chinese on Canal Street, those dreams are now dashed.

Last month, Danny Bowien briefly considered the old Pies n Thighs space for a Vietnamese spinoff. The proposal lasted a New York minute before the team withdrew.

But 43 Canal Street won’t stay dormant much longer, it seems. Former Maiden Lane proprietor Nialls Fallon partnered up with Nicholas Perkins from Hart’s in Brooklyn for the new restaurant. According to application materials submitted to Community Board 3, Fallon and Perkins will impart an eatery with a menu based on “Coastal Mediterranean” fare.

The bar itself will run thirty-one feet deep into the space, and serve ten seats. There are also plans for twelve tables and thirty-three seats. They aim to close at midnight all days.

Judgement day is CB3’s SLA subcommittee meeting on February 6.

43 Canal Street is the store that previously housed Pies ‘n’ Thighs during its ill-fated two-year tenure. Since its high profile closure six months ago, the space has collected plenty of dust (and tags). The dining area remains largely intact, though.

Below is a sample menu:
