After settling that $10 million lawsuit with the distressed residents of 150 Nassau Street, the team behind New York City's first ever Denny's is trying its best to win the hearts of Downtown residents ahead of the restaurant's opening. The team goes before Community Board 1 for liquor license approval on Monday, so last week they held a little meet-and-greet for CB1 members.
Judging by the renderings revealed then, New York's first Denny's is going to be a pretty swanky place, at least by Denny's standards. There are dark leather banquettes, wood floors, exposed brick, and a long communal table down the center. Locals, however, are still far from convinced. But if all goes smoothly, the new place should open by May.
