It looks like Robert Bohr, Grant Reynolds, and Ryan Hardy, the guys behind Soho's two-year-old Italian hot spot Charlie Bird, may be planning a new restaurant nearby on Kenmare Street. On this month's Community Board 2 agenda, an applicant by the name of Elmer Kennedy LLC is seeking a liquor license for the space that, until very recently, held Toby's Public House. A quick search for that LLC reveals that its business address is 5 King Street, the very same address as Charlie Bird.
Industry whispers have circulated recently that the team may be working on a new restaurant, though so far they haven't confirmed. After Toby's Public House closed just last week, a manager confirmed that a new restaurant was moving in, but was not able to say who. Eater has reached out to Bohr for more information.
Update: The Charlie Bird team confirms that all of this is true.
