‘Dizzy’s’ Reactivates Long-Dormant Allen Street Space Last Held by Rayuela
Now nearly four years buried, the former home of Rayuela may finally see a permanent tenant.
Ever since the Spanish tapas restaurant shuttered in mid-2015, the unique space at 165 Allen Street has been rather dormant. Hosting only the occasional pop-up or private event.
Now, one Alexandria Alcala is looking to impart an establishment called Dizzy’s. According to application materials submitted to Community Board 3, the concept is a 42-table lounge-restaurant with a menu of “New American” offerings.
Richard Reddington (from Redd and Redd Wood in Napa) is the chef, with Brian Valencia (Hoxton Hotel bars) on beverage program.
What’s most curious about this applicant, though, is that she’s a commercial real estate broker with Colliers International.
Alcala will appear before the SLA subcommittee of Community Board 3 this month for a full OP license.
