Rhong Tiam, Ed's Lobster Bar Eye the Lower East Side

New, 3 comments

The new agenda for Community Board 3's SLA Licensing Committee meeting has been released (though is not yet online), and as usual there are a few good highlights. Ed McFarland, the lobster wrangler who owns Ed's Lobster Bar in Soho and a lobster kiosk in Battery Park City, is appearing before the board for 25 Clinton Street, the former home of Satchiko's. McFarland tells Eater that should he get approved, this location will be an offshoot of sorts of his Soho venture, not an exact replica. Let's hope he gets the green light. Meanwhile Rhong Tiam could possibly make its grand return to the below Houston dining scene over a year after its Greenwich Village and East Village locations closed with its application for 154 Orchard St.

A group going by the name Downtown Dining LLC is finally taking over the old 205 space. Given CB3's history with this space, this one could be quite the fight. A new entity called Bodega del Sol is after the old Paladar/current Imperial Tavern space, and a humorously named Not a Bookstore LLC is up for the old Superdive space (hardcore Superdive/CB3 followers will get the joke here). Also the long in coming Caffe Buon Gusto on B and East 5th is back on the docket, and an entity called 4AB is after the current Tonda space.

The full agenda is pasted below:
