Townhouse Kitchen + Bar has put up some signage at their new home at 700 6th Street (in the Cadwalader building). We first reported on the restaurant back in December, when they were expecting a "Spring 2012" opening. As of today, we know that's no longer the case, but signs and permits are up. The restaurant will focus on small plates with Spanish and Asian influences, as well as wine.
We also heard yesterday that the new cocktail lounge coming to 6th and F will actually be run by Daikaya's owner, Daisuke Utagawa. He'll create an otsumami menu (Japanese snacks) to go along with the beverages. No name has been announced yet, but we do know the lounge will have a cover charge.
|The cocktail lounge will be in the basement of Fuel Pizza|
Lest you think all of Utagawa's energy is going towards the bar, we're happy to report that Daikaya itself has nearly one full story of brick and mortar up - finally.
