Quality Eats Ludlow Denied by CB3, Despite LES Dwellers Endorsement

Last modified September 1, 2017 at 7:01 pm

Quality Eats tasted raw defeat last night. Community Board 3 voted, in a tiebreaker situation no less, to deny the Stillman steakhouse a full liquor license for a spinoff location at 177 Ludlow Street. Theirs was a holdover application after last month’s withdrawal. Yet, in an ironic turn of events, the restaurant applicant that the LES […]

‘Quality Eats’ Angling for Ludlow Street Expansion at Former 100 Montaditos Space

Posted February 25, 2016 at 4:45 am

When 100 Montaditos went down like a lead balloon after a paltry three months on the block, the franchise owner at 177 Ludlow Street (Mini Hospitality) promised to hold onto the space and return as an “upscale concept.” That never happened, and the real estate remained warehoused as a vacancy by owner Samy Mahfar for over […]

Report: 100 Montaditos Files for Bankruptcy, NYC Expansion Halted

Posted March 9, 2015 at 5:12 am

Suddenly the epic failure of 100 Montaditos on Ludlow Street back in December now makes more sense. Reports surfaced last week that the corporate parent of stateside operations went belly up, and is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Florida courts. The legal proceedings put a halt to the aggressive expansion plans the Spanish-based […]

100 Montaditos on Ludlow Street is Officially Kaput

Posted December 19, 2014 at 5:00 am

For 100 Montaditos, it’s one culture, zero ways to do it. At least on on the battered upper section of Ludlow Street. When it came to the Lower East Side iteration, the Spanish-based fast casual chain was an epic fail and a perfect example of how evading the host community can hurt in the long run. […]

100 Montaditos is Closing Down Its Ludlow Street Location After Only 3 Months

Last modified December 4, 2014 at 9:07 am

Barely three short months into its tenure at 177 Ludlow Street, 100 Montaditos is already dead in the water. Kaput. For added perspective, it took more than a year for the Spanish fast-casual establishment to open in the first place. But no surprise here; the place was perpetually empty from the start. Convenient that 100 […]

100 Montaditos is Still Happening at the Former EarthMatters Store on Ludlow Street

Posted July 21, 2014 at 6:00 am

100 Montaditos is still happening in Hell Square, but taking its sweet ass time. For the first time since June 2013, the entrance of 177 Ludlow Street is again covered by a plywood shed. The new lumber arrived last month with some new teaser signage. We also sniped a glimpse of the interior. It was […]

Notes from CB3: Spitzer’s and 100 Montaditos Denied

Last modified June 18, 2013 at 7:50 am

Hell Square scored mixed results at last night’s SLA subcommittee meeting, yet the real story was the LES Dwellers showcasing their strengething muscle on the nightlife landscape. Everything they opposed was denied by the CB3 panel. And for the first time, the block association supported a couple of the applicants. Below are some notes from […]

CB3 Releases June SLA Agenda

Posted May 30, 2013 at 6:33 am

It’s here – the Community Board 3 agenda for the June SLA subcommittee meeting. There are over thirty items to discuss next month, but judging by the applicants, drama might be at a minimum. Time will tell.  Especially since there are twelve establishments requesting privileges in a resolution area (i.e. saturated zone). Some highlights: 100 […]

100 Montaditos Withdraws Application for 177 Ludlow

Last modified March 16, 2018 at 7:59 am

100 Montaditos has eyes for 177 Ludlow Street, but might need to wait a little longer. As we revealed earlier this month, the fast-food cerveceria is applying for a full liquor license inside the former EarthMatters space, but is currently on the hitlist of the LES Dwellers block association. There is an ongoing dialog, though. The group […]
