First Word: Le Souk, Freemans Face Community Board 3

New, 3 comments

As DBTH points out, Community Board 3 has posted their agenda for next month's liquor license hearing, something the Eater offices eagerly anticipate each and every month. And as usual, it looks like it is going to be a real circus. Most notably, the vilified NIMBY nemesis Le Souk goes back before the board for a renewal. This, of course, is the restaurant/bar/club that had its liquor license revoked by the SLA following community protest and then reinstated by a judge after an appeal. Now, the neighbors have to get their pitchforks out of the closet for another go around. But Le Souk isn't the only guest at this party/stuffy meeting in a senior center!

Freemans will go up to apply for liquor for their second floor space, something called Cafetasia wants to open in the old Arrow Bar space, and new restaurants are headed for both the Mary Ann's space and the shuttered Cure space. Think Coffee wants beer and wine for its new shop on 4th Ave. near Union Square, and a bar called The Immigrant Wine Bar would like to open on East 9th Street. Now who's excited? Stay tuned for more after the meeting on October 13.
