More on ‘Gouie New York’ Sake Bar at the Market Line

Posted on: January 17th, 2019 at 5:02 am by

The team behind Itzakaya, Davelle, and Samurice is multiplying again on the Lower East Side. More specifically, joining the ever-swelling roster of the Market Line concourse at Essex Crossing.

As previously reported, the entity is to be a Japanese sake bar called Gouie New York. And now we have some additional details, including sample menu and view inside the in-progress Market Line. It’ll sport heft, too, occupying fifteen tables with communal seating for ninety-eight.

Its name first appeared on the December docket for Community Board 3 – albeit, as Samurice NY Inc. – seeking a wine-beer license. And again this month, but was scratched both times.

The Market Line lineup is fairly deep at this point, boasting about two-dozen vendors. It’s expected to open later this spring.
