Simply Hooked is simply one inspection from its maiden voyage.
The Clinton Street fish-and-chips joint peeled away the white butcher paper from its windows not too long ago, and instead replaced with artwork of whales and sea life from students in the New Amsterdam School (62 Avenue B). Behind that veneer, the operation is basically ready to go.
With chef Matthias Leuliette is in the kitchen, Simply Hooked promises “a modern rendering of a timeless classic,” using the “best quality fish from sustainable sources.”
Ownership tells us that Simply Hooked is “millimeters away” from opening at 47 Clinton Street. As you might expect, the final hurdle is a Con Edison inspection. End of month is a likely scenario.
The Lonely Whale Foundation is also involved with the operation, maintaining a “close partnership” with the restaurant. This organization was founded by actor Adrian Grenier in 2015, and seeks to bring people “closer to the world’s oceans through education and awareness, inspiring empathy and action for ocean health and the wellbeing of marine wildlife.”
ICON Realty Management owns 47 Clinton Street, having purchased the property in September 2014, just after unloading the parcels across the street (soon to become condos).
Ariel’s Latin Bistro, which arrived on the Lower East Side nightlife scene in June 2014, is down for the count. The bar-restaurant closed last week with little notice to the neighborhood. And while the decorative lights still gleam within, leasing signs in the windows cancel it out. That Ariel’s shuttered isn’t out of the blue. […]
A vigil was held yesterday afternoon in Kimlau Square to honor Brooklyn-born Peter Wang, who was tragically killed in the Parkland high school shooting last week. The gathering was organized by the United Fujian Association. Wang was a cadet in the U.S. Army’s Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. When […]
It’s been two years since we learned about the new hotel planned for 79 Eldridge Street, the long-vacant lot situated south of Grand. Despite the submission of building plans to the city back in March 2016, inactivity has been the trend here. No longer. As of last week, the green-hued perimeter plywood is now constructed […]
Siggy’s Good Food will end its restaurant business this weekend after thirteen years. The Elizabeth Street outpost – on the block since 2012 – closes for good on Saturday. “Goodbye, NYC, you gave us wings and now it’s time to fly,” reads the official announcement. Siggy’s eponymous owner is apparently off to Charlotte with its […]
The Streit’s name hasn’t held court on the Lower East Side since demolition of 148-154 Rivington Street commenced in the summer of 2016. Now, in its place, teaser signage for the upper crust newcomer which just topped out last week. The token signal of apex – an American flag – was planted atop the seven-story […]
A homeless man was found dead on Saturday afternoon in a parked van on eastern Delancey Street. Police sources tell us that the owner of the van had allowed the homeless man to sleep in the vehicle, which was parked at the southeast corner of Pitt and Delancey Streets. (Like in the movie With Honors.) […]
The cantilevered box of condos at 100 Norfolk Street debuted late last year, and became an instant eyesore, following in the grand tradition of Blue just across the street. Now, word is circulating that its crown jewel penthouse just closed for an eye-popping $6.73 million. The real estate PR machine is calling this transaction the […]
The dying carcass of Little Italy continues to get picked apart. Mere days after a devastating fire knocked out Angelo’s on Mulberry Street comes word that the Most Precious Blood Church is selling its rectory. (The church itself is on Baxter Street.) The fifty-foot-wide property in question, located at 109 Mulberry Street, currently houses the […]
He’s nineteen-years-old and has the food industry smitten. Teen chef prodigy Flynn McGarry this week opened a new Lower East Side restaurant on Forsyth Street called Gem. It’s a dining concept with split personality, offering both a coffee shop vibe (like it’s predecessor Cafe Henrie) and place for deep-pocketed tasting menu seekers. The Living Room, […]
Just over a year after its debut, Miss Paradis on Prince Street closed down for a “makeover.” Uh oh. Brown butcher paper installed at the end of January currently obstructs the wraparound windows at 47 Prince Street, along with a message about renovating the premises. Miss Paradis promises to return in the “next couple weeks.” […]
