Liquor Licenses Hint at New Restaurants and Bars


Lily’s 74 didn’t last long, and now there’s a new liquor license application for the spot.

New restaurants and bars applying for liquor licenses will go before Community Board 7 on Wednesday night to present their plans. The filings show that new places are hoping to open throughout the neighborhood, from the West 70’s to the 100’s.

A new sushi restaurant is looking to open on 72nd Street, a cafe wants to open in Majestic Towers on 75th, and an unnamed restaurant plans to replace the short-lived Lily 74 (Grandma’s) on Amsterdam and 74th. Other bars and restaurants will also have a hearing.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at 250 West 87th Street. The agenda is below:

Business & Consumer Issues Committee, Michele Parker and George Zeppenfeldt-Cestero,

      That’s going to be really confusing, all those restaurants called “To Be Determined” within a couple of blocks of each other.

      Couldn’t they have come up with more distinctive names, like “You Won’t Get Food Poisoning Here” or “The New Delhi Deli”?

    2. Margaret says:

      Huh, 421 Amsterdam is Barley & Grain’s address. Is that the right address for Yama Ramen’s application?

    3. Sean says:

      The location pictured is the worst. It hasn’t had a successful business in it since it was the Shark Bar and that was sometime in the last century.

      No surprise re Lily’s, alas
