Not-good news for Club Cumming

After getting in trouble for not having the proper liquor license to host live music, Alan Cumming’s East Village salon Club Cumming has been forced to stop the shows. Cumming and co-owner Daniel Nardicio have applied for a license change and are waiting on the State Liquor Authority’s decision. The club is still open in the meantime with its knitting and book club nights, but no live music or DJ’s for now.

One closing and three coming attractions

Oddfellows is adding another ice cream outpost at 55 East Houston St., Williamsburg bakery Butler Bake Shop is expanding to Dumbo at 60 Water St., and vegan cafe Sol Sips is coming to 203 Wilson Ave. permanently after popping up there. Meanwhile, Baci e Vendetta on Avenue A has shuttered for not being “sustainable.”

A new revenue stream for restaurants

Notoriously low restaurant profit margins are getting a boost from unexpected areas. Pera Mediterranean Brasserie and Pennsylvania 6 — near Grand Central and Penn Station, respectively — are both bringing in money by storing people’s bags with by-the-day fees. Pennsylvania 6 gets about $2,000 a month by doing this, the Post reports, with approximately 25 percent of those people ending up eating or drinking at the restaurant.

Jeju Noodle Bar impresses NY mag critic

New York magazine critic Adam Platt heads to Jeju Noodle Bar this week, trying the food at the seven-month-old Korean ramyun restaurant. Despite having low expectations to start, Platt ended up loving his meal there, especially the mussel stew. “... the item that caused us to bolt upright on our slightly undersize barstools was a bowl of mussel stew (soon du bu) constructed with, among other things, cuttings of chives, soft chunks of tofu, and a rich, multilayered broth tinged with the smoky taste of tomatoes.” Two out of five stars.
