It would be replacing a sushi restaurant.

Daniel Delaney's East Village restaurant concept will be serving barbecue food, despite the restaurant LLC's "Chicken Union Square" name. The barbecue and fried chicken maven submitted a preliminary menu to Manhattan Community Board 3's liquor license committee with items like smoked brisket, pork ribs, and pulled pork — a line-up that's not so different from the offerings at BrisketTown. Still, Delaney tells Eater that he's just exploring the space at 167 First Ave., and the barbecue menu may be tweaked in a final version of the restaurant. He's previously also applied for a liquor license in Greenpoint for a project that didn't end up happening.

The proposed plan for the restaurant includes a dining room with 18 tables and 48 seats, a 10-seat bar, and a happy hour until 7 p.m. Delaney and his team will be presenting in front of the liquor license community board committee at a meeting next Monday. The board's vote is advisory to the State Liquor Authority, which makes the ultimate decision on whether Delaney receives a license. Take a look at Delaney's proposed plan to the community board below.
