And now, this site will see a 122% increase in traffic. As best as I can tell from a quick Googly search, this is a WIHDC exclusive, thus far.
OMGZ! 14th Street will be getting another new restaurant. Perhaps. No, we're not talking about Blu Lounge & Grill where the old bodega used to be. There's now an ABRA license application notice posted in the space between Vastu and City Paws. The new restaurant will be called Masa 14, and will feature Mediterranean and Asian fusion tapas and cocktails. That's a mouthful.
Two new restaurants/bars on 14th Street between S and T. Meanwhile, it appears that both Bar Pilar and Cafe St. Ex want to switch from restaurant licenses to tavern licenses.
Anyone want to take bets on the following?
1. How long will these two new restaurants last? and
2. How many yuppie bloggers will gush about these?
Oh and just what the hell is Mediterranean and Asian fusion tapas? It's like all the restaurants on 14th Street had an orgy and then their abortion was turned into a new restaurant.
I used to work on that strip of 14th, and while there is a lot of foot traffic, and a lot of people going to Black Cat, these seems a bit excessive. But whatever, let's open more restaurants--unemployed bloggers need somewhere to hang out.
