The former home of Saigon Grill and briefly Key Food at 90th Street and Amsterdam could get a new tenant soon, as Japanese Steakhouse Gyu-Kaku has filed for a liquor license at the location. Gyu-Kaku means horn of the bull” and the chain has several locations in the city.

The restaurant is expected to go before the Community Board 7 on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at 250 West 87th Street.

Also on the agenda, is an application for Tiki Chick, a new chicken-focused restaurant from Jacob’s Pickles owner Jacob Hadjigeorgis. We first wrote about it here.

      I’m all for sidewalk cafes but at times the crowds just outright block the entire sidewalk – little chance to get through and zero oversight or crowd control by the operators. Maybe there could be some sensible and reasonable limitations where the sidewalk area is even further reduced by trees, bus stops, scaffoldings, etc.?

      • Sean says:

        Plenty of wide sidewalks north of W96th St. that would be ideal for a boulevard of cafe seating. Enough room for SUV sized strollers too.

    2. Mark Moore says:

      A Gyu-Kaku would be great. Key Food was a disaster at that spot and it’s been empty for something like two years now.

    3. AM says:

      Does anyone know what’s opening in 329 Columbus ave (between 75th and 76th, next to Duane Reade)? It’s been vacant for a few years now but I just saw above that the Lessee submitted an application for a liquor license.
