Dudley’s Plans Expansion into Broome Street Gallery Space

Posted on: January 31st, 2019 at 5:00 am by

Dudley’s currently seeks an alteration to its liquor license that would permit an expansion of the premises. The seven-year-old Australian-style cafe, which previously pushed into the old Guss’ Pickles spot, is now eyeing the former gallery at its backside.

This annex, if approved, would give Dudley’s control of the entire corner of Orchard and Broome Streets. It would also create enough legroom for 15 tables and 32 seats, plus one large table in the basement with 14 seats.

Community Board 3 will weigh in on the proposed expansion into 261 Broome Street next month. They will discuss and vote on whether green-lighting an unlicensed storefront garners a greater public benefit.

Dudley’s opened in June 2012, having replaced the then-longstanding Tiny Giant. They took over the adjacent space at Orchard Street three years later, and introduced the Dudley’s Deli concept. RISE Brewing Co. jumped aboard with a symbiotic coffee counter in 2017.
