Eldridge Sandwich Joint Eying 245 Eldridge

Posted on: May 10th, 2011 at 6:39 am by

Following the tax-related closure of the Satsko annex at 245 Eldridge Street, another East Village nightlife purveyor is giving the space a go. According to documents furnished on the Community Board 3 website [PDF], Timothy Falzone of Avenue B rock dive White Noise is developing the storefront into a tiny “artisanal” sandwich joint.  The working name at the moment is Eldridge Sandwich.

The applicant questionnaire details plans for three tables with seating for twenty-five, and the inclusion of a nine-foot standup bar.  Music programming will reportedly rely on a house iPod, and hook into a “small vintage home stereo” with four speakers.  That’s all fine and dandy, but Falzone and partner Robert Ceraso are obviously gunning for that coveted liquor license.  The co-owners will appear before CB3 next Monday to apply for wine and beer privileges.

As of now, though, the storefront is seemingly inactive.  Two notices are taped to street furniture near 245 Eldridge to inform residents; the leasing sign remains behind the shuttered security gate.
