Kenmare Street Shuffle: Asiadog, Ten Degrees, Toby’s Public, and an ‘Elite’ Hotel Coming?

By

Real Deal echoes the Post in pointing out that Kenmare Street is the new restaurant row, and adds an interesting morsel: The Cleveland Place building that formerly held Le Jardin (and temporarily houses What Happens When) will be turned into an “exclusive, elite, members-only club” that will be “similar to the Soho House in the Meatpacking District,” according to a Real Deal source. Meanwhile, we’ve heard that East Village wine bar Ten Degrees had planned to take a former psychic’s den at 66 Kenmare and was poised to do so as recently as last week, but the latest Community Board 2 agenda has Trophy Bar and Brooklyn Flea sensation Asiadog going after the space (they’ve been looking for a downtown location for a good year now). Whoever succeeds in snagging it may have a neighbor in Toby’s Public House, which is pursuing a license at 86 Kenmare (formerly the Village Tart).
