Nicholas Morgenstern of Morgenstern’s Ice Cream, GG’s, and El Rey will open a ground floor restaurant and rooftop lounge in an upcoming Ace Hotel on Bowery, according to a liquor license application.
In an extensive 97-page filing, plans show that the ground-floor American restaurant will be called Cafe Como, offering all-day dining in a more than 2,000-square-foot space, Bowery Boogie reports. Especially notable is the fact that the restaurant plans to be open until 4 a.m., serving dishes like parsnip pancakes and fava and lamb ravioli during the day, as well as uni butter toast and roast chicken at night. The full proposed menu is below.
Up on the rooftop, more than 1,700-square-feet will utilize both indoor and outdoor space with 29 tables, again open until 4 a.m. Eater has reached out to Morgenstern — quite the busy guy, with three restaurants in the vicinity already under his belt — for more information.
This new Ace Hotel has been in the works for years. It replaces an old Salvation Army at 225 Bowery with 10 floors.
