An Asian tavern and bar is looking to replace the space formerly occupied by E. Broadway Pizza in Chinatown.
The yet-to-be-named concept will be located on the ground floor of the mixed-use building in the Lower East Side’s Chinatown neighborhood. Its slated to offer 14 tables with 29 seats, as well as one stand-up service bar, and it’s anticipated hours of operation are 6 p.m. until midnight on Sunday, 6 p.m. until 1 a.m. from Monday through Thursday, and 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. from Friday through Saturday.
The application was submitted by Yuri Itakura who has served as a manager at the popular punk-rock Japanese sake and cocktail bar, Sake Bar Decibel, which has been serving the East Village since 1993.
“I’m very excited about our new project, but we are still in the very elementary stages,” he told What Now New York.
Its proposed menu includes starters like edamame, appetizers like decibel tofu and okra gomaae, sashimi, small dishes like wasabi shumai and edamame gyoza, entrees like zaru udon and zaru soba, as well as a wide-ranging Asian liquor menu including nigori sake, ginjo, and daiginjo.
