‘Double Chicken Please’ Eyes Hill & Dale Space on Allen Street

Posted on: June 5th, 2019 at 5:00 am by

The roving cocktail van finally found permanent parking, so to speak. On Allen Street.

Double Chicken Please, the concept from Huey Chang (Raku, Kura) and Angel’s Share alum Gn Chan, is angling to open shop at 115 Allen Street. Which also means that Hill & Dale isn’t long for the neighborhood.

According to application materials submitted to Community Board 3 ahead of this month’s meetings, the proposed establishment seeks a full liquor license with daily closing times of 4am. It is to boast fourteen tables, sixty-two seats, and bar dining for twenty-one. Menu consists of “share plates and specialty sandwiches.” (See below.)

The bar-restaurant last May sought to take over the former Shoolbred’s space at 197 Second Avenue. When those plans didn’t materialize, though, Chan briefly took the concept on the road – cross country – outfitting a 1977 Volkswagen camper van as a pop-up bar on wheels.

Hill & Dale opened at 115 Allen Street in 2013, and is the most successful of its most recent predecessors (e.g. Allen & Delancey, Mary Queen of Scots). This is the second time in as many years that they’ve sought to unload. In 2017, the founders of Bareburger considered the space.
