Last week, rumors surfaced that father and son restaurateur duo Michael and Alan Stillman — they of Quality Meats, The Hurricane Club, and Park Avenue Summer — were planning a new project for the massive space at 199 Bowery, formerly home to Soiree, BLVD, and Crash Mansion. Reps told Eater that if the Stillmans did do a project there, it would be a Quality Meats Downtown.
Today The Lo-Down reports that the team appeared before the CB3 last night and won approval for a "slightly more affordable" version of Quality Meats. Their plan for the space includes 300 seats in the dining room, a club downstairs, and a bakery and ice cream stand in the front. The group asked for a 4 AM close time seven nights a week, and agreed to having licensed security personnel at the door. Expect a full report from last night's CB3 meeting later today.
