Seen & Heard: Is Lindsay Lohan Opening a Restaurant Here?

Cristina Dos Santos••• Community Board 1 sent out updated agendas for the rest of the month’s meetings. Of note: The liquor-license application for 96A W. Broadway (which doesn’t exist) is actually for 86A W. Broadway. That’s where JR Sushi is. Also, the folks applying for a liquor license for 39 N. Moore have postponed, perhaps due to the neighbors’ opposition. Best of all is an email that came in yesterday morning from one of the neighbors: “We’re told that Lindsay Lohan was in the retail store currently in our commercial space late this afternoon. Importantly, she was talking about the potential design of the space, including where she would like to put a bar and a DJ booth.” As I replied, “I’m not sure I believe it (but that won’t stop me from mentioning it!).”

UPDATE: A reader emailed in response to my question as to whether there had ever been a restaurant at the space: “In the mid to late nineties there was, at 41 N. Moore, a cafe/nightclub/performance space that served food. Perhaps the vents are still there.” It was called the Fast Folk Café.

••• The New York Times wrote about the $19 million sale at 1 York, but didn’t conjecture (like I did) as to who bought it.

••• Also in the New York Times: An NYU student who helped put himself through school by working his fanny off at Bubby’s.

••• The word on the street is that kids’ fitness activity ExerBlast is leaving 100 Reade. No clue where to, or even whether it’ll be in the area.

  1. Very unlikely that Lindsay Lohan ever said that or did that. Also, the Clintons are not moving to Tribeca.

  2. Just because she asks about a bar and a DJ booth doesn’t mean she is planning a restaurant. No particular feelings about her, but it seems like whether it’s a funeral parlor or a dentist’s office, “LiLo” expects a DJ booth and bar to be there.
