What’s The Deal With: Loui Loui, The Cocktail Room, Abandoned Liquor Store On 2nd

Here’s a round-up of recent questions from 78thand2nd readers about neighborhood happenings.  If you’re in the know, please enlighten us all in the comments section.

1) 75th and 3rd – What’s going on with the former Loui Loui restaurant space on 75th and 3rd?  Besides waging an aggressive campaign against posting bills, looks like a ‘lil construction happening. Marshall writes in “I live on 75th and 3rd and yesterday, I saw a wood facade go up around the restaurant called Loui’s, which closed a few months ago.  I heard a rumor that Citarella has purchased the space and plans to open its own restaurant there… any truth to that?” 

2) 73rd and 1st – Michael writes “I noticed what might be movement/preparation for something in the space the formerly occupied by the Cocktail Room (on 73rd between 1st and 2nd).”  The windows have been given the once-over treatment with that “first sign of construction, don’t look in here” paper, now blocking the views inside. Is the former Cocktail Room, which closed earlier this summer, being prepped for something?

3) 78th and 2nd – 78thand2nd commenter Ace raises a question I’d love answered: “Does anyone know why the liquor store next to Bardalino has been under renovations for what seems like forever?”  The spot has been closed for at least a year and a half, with no nothing happening there at all.

A round-up of answers coming later this week!

    Loui Loui wasn’t great anyway–hopefully we’ll get something better there.

    I’ve heard the reason the liquor store next to Bardolino was closed was because they got caught selling to minors.

  4. I’m not sure where you’re getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more. Thanks for wonderful information I was looking for this information for my mission.
