‘GupShup’ Owner Heads to the Bowery with New Indian Restaurant

Posted on: September 9th, 2019 at 5:04 am by

Gramercy’s hip new Indian restaurant GupShup will soon have a Lower East Side sibling. Its owner, the Indian-born Jimmy Rizvi, is eyeing the Bowery for his latest vision.

Site chosen is 245 Bowery, at the corner of Stanton Street, where Cata held court for six years until its demise. And it’s the second suitor at this address in five months.

The proposed restaurant is a 23-table affaire called Chote Miyaa, according to the liquor license questionnaire submitted to Community Board 3. It’ll have a full menu and stay open late – 2am during the week on 3am on weekends. Live music is also in the plans, including Bollywood and Jazz performances.

Rizvi goes before the SLA subcommittee of Community Board 3 tonight.
