The team behind hot spots Hart’s, Cervo’s, and the Fly signed a lease at 252 Broome Street, between Ludlow and Orchard streets, on the Lower East Side: The new restaurant’s name, menu, and concept are still in the works. Co-owner Nialls Fallon tells Eater that he’ll lead the sister to Cervo’s with his partners Nick Perkins and Leah Campbell, also behind the group’s restaurants. The other partners include Cervo’s chef Aaron Crowder and wine and service director Taylor Ward. Hart’s first opened in 2016 in Bed-Stuy, followed by Cervo’s on the Lower East Side in 2017, and later the Fly in Clinton Hill in 2019. Last year, the restaurateurs also launched their own line of tinned fish. The Broome Street space was previously home to cocktail bar Sally Can Wait, which closed in December 2022.
