Right out of the tap at Craft & Carry.
A beer store and tap room operation called Craft & Carry is applying for a license at the former home of Mokum at 466 Amsterdam Avenue at 82nd Street. They promise they’re “craft beer fans, not snobs.” Craft & Carry has four other locations in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn at the Dekalb Market. “We will be bringing 16 rotating drafts specializing in local and independent craft beers along with 300-400 varieties of packaged craft beers, ciders, hard seltzers, and other craft beverages,” Dieter Seelig, one of the owners, tells us. “We are hoping to be open by May. We’re really hoping to be an amenity for neighborhood. We know people up here love their craft beer.” They plan to offer 1-hour delivery in the neighborhood, with 32-ounce “Crowlers” or curated craft beer varieties. See the website here. Thanks to Upper West Sider for the tip.
PJ Clarke’s is opening PJ Clarke’s Oyster Bar right next door to the restaurant at 44 West 63rd Street. The oyster bar appears to be taking at least part of the space occupied by cosmetics store Lavelier. PJ Clarke’s is currently closed but plans to reopen sometime between March 15 and April 1. The opening date for the oyster bar hasn’t yet been determined. Thanks to Courtnay for the tip.
Daniello’s at 95th and Columbus has a sign on the door saying it’s closed and number is out of service. It had “a very solid slice and their margarita pie was far above average,” Jay tells us. Thanks to Jay and Alex for the tips.
A new concept called Le French Wine Shop by Vin Sur Vingt is replacing the former Tower West Cleaners at 161 Amsterdam Avenue at 67th Street, otherwise known as Tower 67, tipster Upper West Sider tells us. “The name and logo of the new concept can be seen on the new Newmark listing brochure, which also suggests that The Barbers on Amsterdam at 165 Amsterdam Ave is about to close. The folks behind the new concept (and the growing chain itself) are also listed behind a new liquor license filing seen here.”
