Manhattan Cricket Club Seeks Liquor License and Sweetgreen Applies for Sidewalk Cafe; Meeting Wednesday


Bottoms up!

A familiar name is on the agenda for a Community Board 7 Business Committee meeting on Wednesday:  Manhattan Cricket Club, the Australian bar that recently closed on 79th Street.

A bar by that name at the same address — 226 West 79th — is on the agenda for the meeting, promising to have live and recorded music and dancing. Manhattan Cricket Club was connected to Burke & Wills, which was seized by city marshals in January. Former Burke & Wills owner Heathe St. Clair tells us he’s not behind the new bar, though a former general manager may be.

Also on the agenda are Sweetgreen at 311 Amsterdam Avenue (West 75th Street), which is applying for a sidewalk cafe with 12 tables; and the upcoming restaurant Jack’s Wife Freda, which plans to open at 148 Columbus Avenue between 66th and 67th Streets and is seeking a liquor license.

The meeting starts at 6:30 at 250 West 87th Street.
