Two interesting developments on the Lower East Side today. First, in the East Village, the Lo-Down reports that Matt Levine, who just closed the Eldridge, now has his eye on Mason Dixon, the Rob Shamlian bar that was just shut down for underage drinking and after-hours drink sales. At a Community Board 3 SLA Committee meeting last night, Levine proposed a New American restaurant “featuring cuisine honoring the neighborhood’s history. He mentioned Irish, Polish, and German specialties and an "array of mac and cheeses." Neighbors objected to a proposed 4 a.m. closing time on weekends and he withdrew his application. Meanwhile, the Post reports that Brick Lane Curry House is not only planning a location at Third Avenue and 93rd Street, but has also taken over the long-vacant space at 99 Second Avenue that formerly belonged to Sea Salt.
