The corner spot on 76th Street and Amsterdam Avenue that briefly held Burrata Bakery and Pizza Bar has been empty for well over a year. But a company has finally decided to open a new business there — Drybar is expecting to sign a lease for the space this week, Crain’s reported.

Burrata closed suddenly for “renovations” in January 2011 after opening just a few months before. In June the marshal gave legal possession of the property back to the landlord, according to a notice posted on the door.

Drybar is known for its $40 blowouts, and for serving champagne and playing chick flicks. Drybar’s expansion will help “affluent, professional women that must look their best 100% of the time,” Faith Hope Consolo, head of retail leasing at Prudential, told Crain’s. As opposed to the rest of you shlubs!

Thanks to Ken for the tip.
