The East Village and LES' feared Community Board 3 has yet to put up its September agendas, but The Lo-Down gets its hands on a the SLA Licensing Committee docket. Unfortunately, there are no heavy hitters this month, but there are a few fun items. 1) Slurp, the sad Vietnamese restaurant on the corner of Stanton and Allen will become Meatball Shop! Yes, a meatball centric restaurant, right down the street from the nabe's first poutine place and a dedicated artisan cannoli shop. This isn't going off the rails at all!
2) Sing Sing announced plans to open a new karoke joint over on West 4th Street, but by the looks of it they're expanding to the LES too. Their Karaoke Boho is applying for liquor at 196 Orchard. 3) Someone is finally taking the Kelly & Ping space at 325 Bowery. 4) A restaurant called Senor Izquierda hopes to open in the shuttered Pere Pinard on Ludlow. 5) Home Sweet Home is expanding its Chrystie Street space. Check back for more after the meeting on Sept. 14.
