The Warren Street Sushi Bar

From Community Board 1…. My comments are indented on the line below.

Location: Manhattan Borough President’s Office 1 Centre Street, 19th Floor – Southside
1. Privately Owned Public Spaces (POPS) 101 – Presentation by Stella Kim, POPS Division, Department of City Planning (Waterfront, Parks & Resiliency Committee invited for this item)

The big question is when the city will start enforcing its own rules, so that 101 Barclay and other scofflaws either open up their “public” spaces or pony up something else in exchange. And/or: Change the law that lets developers build larger for public amenities it never has to deliver.

2. Residential Development in Lower Manhattan 2000 – Present & Impact Funds – Presentation by Rajiv Kumar & Sarita Rupan, CB1 Fund for the City of New York Urban Fellows

4/10 Youth & Education Committee – 6:00 PM

Location: Manhattan Borough President’s Office, 1 Centre Street, 19th Floor – Southside

Tribeca
1. 20 Warren Street, application for liquor license for ICCA – Resolution

The notices in the window indicate a sushi bar.

2. 200 Church Street, application for an unenclosed sidewalk café for Tribeca’s Kitchen – Resolution
3. The following notices have been received for renewal, upgrade, corporate change, alteration or transfer of wine and beer or liquor licenses, renewal of sidewalk cafe permits and recurring street closure permits:
—50 Hudson Street, application for renewal of liquor license for Bar Cyrk

So maybe Bar Cyrk will reopen someday.

—114 Franklin Street, application for renewal of liquor license for Tutto Il Giorno
—135 Reade Street, application for renewal of liquor license for Reade Street Pub

Battery Park City 

1) 225 Liberty Street, application for beer and cider license for Olive’s – Resolution
2) 36 Battery Place, application for liquor license for Lox Café – Resolution
3) 200 Vesey Street Store 199, application for liquor license for Sant Ambroeus – 
Resolution

Seaport/Civic Center
1) 96 Lafayette Street, application for liquor license for Muses NYC Inc. – Resolution
2) 19 Fulton Street, application for liquor license for HHC Cobblestones LLC – Resolution
3) 203 Front Street, application for liquor license for HHC Cobblestones LLC – Resolution

HHC Cobblestones LLC is the Seaport District; 19 Fulton is where Clinton Hall is, and 203 Fulton is a non-place, which makes me wonder whether it’s not actually 23 (the Guess store). It’s interesting that Howard Hughes Corp. appears to be the primary owner of the various bars/restaurants opening at the Seaport—is it just essentially hiring operators rather than leasing? Either way, CB1 should inquire as to who’s operating these venues. It didn’t for the Pier 19 discussion last month.

4) The following notices have been received for renewal, upgrade, corporate change, alteration or transfer of wine and beer or liquor licenses, renewal of sidewalk cafe permits and recurring street closure permits:
—111 Fulton Street, application for renewal of wine, beer and cider license for Melt Shop
—228 Front Street, application for renewal of liquor license for Jeremy’s Ale House
—225 Front Street, application for renewal of liquor license for Barbalu

Maybe this event gets discussed and the four below don’t because it’s new and the others are repeats? Just a guess.

2) 213-221 Pearl Street, application for a hotel liquor license for Lam Pearl Hotel LLC – Resolution
3) 60 Broad Street, 24th & 25th Floors, application for wine, beer & cider license for COWORKRS 60 Broad Street d/b/a Bond 60 Broad – Resolution

Substructure and Miscellaneous Repairs – Resolution
2) 11 Fulton Street, storefront redesign – Resolution
3) 412 Greenwich Street, application for façade alterations including lighting, signage, 
ADA handrail, and skylight in existing awning – Resolution

That’s the Sterling Mason (between Laight and Hubert), and no wonder someone (Dig Inn?) wants a skylight and lighting—it’s as dark as a coal mine under that wide metal canopy.
