‘Sally Can Wait’ (on Liquor License) for 245 Bowery

Posted on: February 11th, 2020 at 5:05 am by

So Sally can wait, she knows it’s too late as we’re walking on by … 245 Bowery.

Sally Can Wait, an apparent nod to Oasis’ “Don’t Look Back in Anger,” is the latest establishment to make a run for 245 Bowery (corner of Stanton), last occupied by Cata. In fact, it is the fourth applicant for the space in the last nine months.

The proposed venture – helmed by Matthew Friedlander and Zachary Mazzeo-Snyder – would boast twenty tables and a bar with twelve stools. Menu is described as “Jewish/Latin fusion,” including knishes, Cuban latkes, toasted chicken, and shrimp sandwiches.

Friedlander is the general manager at Grand Banks in TriBeCa, but has management experience at the former 200 Orchard bar and Lolita on the Lower East Side; Mazzeo-Snyder is the Director/Executive of Food and Beverage at SummerOps.

And it appears as though the bar has been an idea for a few years. At least according to a blog post with a dog announcing as much, dated July 2017.

The two partners will go before Community Board 3 for the liquor license recommendation tomorrow night.
