It intends to offer worldly seasonal small plates with select entrees, desserts and bar drinks, according to a liquor license application submitted to Manhattan Community Board 2. It plans to have 11 tables with 22 seats and a bar with 10 seats. It will be run by a new hospitality group, D6 Hospitality, founded by Conor O’Higgins, David Drinkwater, and Nicholas Demirjian. O’Higgins is affiliated with a bar in Dublin, Ireland, called Brickyard Gastropub, and Drinkwater is affiliated with Maiden Lane, a European bar in Alphabet City.

The 950-square-foot space is housed in a mixed-use building built in 1900. Between 2012 and 2021, it was occupied by Big Gay Ice Cream Shop. It is currently a bodega called Cigarillos. 

“We’re still in the earliest stages and are waiting for a number of items to be in place before we start spreading the word too much,” says co-owner, David Drinkwater, who will primarily help with back-end business matters. 

The menu included in the liquor license lists small plates like foraged mushroom arancini with smoked garlic aioli ($18) and charred hispi cabbage with soused anchovies, crisp shallot and burnt butter hollandaise ($28) to large plates like baked whole bass with romanesco cauliflower and caviar cream ($80) and whole roasted square with pearl onion, smoked halloumi and gremolata ($28). There will also be sides like french fries with parsley and garlic aioli ($10) and bar snacks like reuben bits with piccalilli ($13.50) and a cheese charcuterie ($16).

“Our menu will be hugely inclusive and have something for everyone from price to allergen awareness,” it says in their liquor license application. 

The tiered pricing system will range from $10 to over $60, according to the liquor license.
