New Restaurant to Be Focused on Sandwiches

8 Park PlaceTomorrow night’s CB1 FiDi Committee agenda includes a liquor license at 8 Park Place (just west of Broadway), which I wrongly assumed was the former Sabor de Mexico space, which is actually on the other side of the street. I asked CB1 if it had any info. Lo and behold! The name of the establishment is Five and Dime Hospitality, and here’s how it describes its mission:

Our focus is on sandwiches of varying size: miniature tea sandwiches for a snack or to share; medium meals based on deli salads and meat or cheese; and larger, heart hot ‘rafts.’ That’s our own name for open-faced toasted sandwiches smothered in cheese sauce, inspired by the lunch counter parlance of ‘Adam and Even on a raft’ meaning eggs on toast. Accompaniments will include kettle chips, pickles, and housemade condiments.

Proprietor Mark Mohrmann, who lives nearby, has never had an SLA license. Five and Dime Hospitality is hoping to be open from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m Sunday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. If you want to learn more, the CB1 meeting is at 6 p.m. at the Manhattan Municipal Building (1 Centre Street, Room 2202A-North; bring ID).
