MORE SIGNS OF LIFE AT EYESORE ON AMSTERDAM: ‘TIME OUT’ SPACE COULD BECOME A BAR AGAIN

We reported about a year ago that a company called BT Restaurant Enterprises had applied for a liquor license at 349 Amsterdam Avenue between 76th and 77th Streets. That space, which once housed Time Out sports bar, has been empty for years.

News of a new restaurant was an exciting development, because the facade has become an eyesore. The application said it was supposed to become a high-end spot, serving dishes like John Dory with roasted fig and Angus burgers.

Sadly, a year has passed and the old location looks pretty much the same. But now there’s some more movement at the space, however. The BT Restaurant folks have reapplied for a new liquor license, this time asking to stay open until 4 a.m. No word yet on what the name of the restaurant/bar might be. A community board committee will discuss the application at a meeting on Wednesday night. Perhaps the owners will reveal more then.
