Sidewalk cafe for Canal Street Oysters

CB1 approved a sidewalk cafe for Canal Street Oysters, but not without a little pushback first. In the end, the restaurant will have eight tables and 40 seats on the West Broadway side, open till midnight on weekends, brought down from their original proposal of 11 tables and 52 seats. Should breath a little life into that quiet stretch of sidewalk.

And on the flipside, the new Sweetgreen on Chambers just east of West Bway was rejected for a sidewalk cafe due to the narrowness of the sidewalk and the foot traffic. Phew.
