Noho: Today we take a little tour of the members only speakeasy mentioned in Grub Street Tuesday, Bohemian on 57 Great Jones Street. While it may someday require a key card swipe for access, right now the construction site is pretty easy to wander into. Workers on the scene tell us the new spot—which will operate as a regular small plates restaurant during dinner hours—could be ready to open Monday, but they're waiting on a slew of permits and licenses (including a liquor license, natch).
One special feature: a natural garden built into an alcove, created by a designer flown in from Japan. Another fun fact, they share the building with a speciality butcher, Japanese Premium Beef, Inc., which is set to open tomorrow. Call 212-260-2333 for all your shabu shabu and Yakiniku needs.
