Antibes Owners Planning New Venture for 120 Rivington
Despite some hiccups last June with Community Board 3, sources tell us that the folks behind Antibes Bistro still have grand plans for 120 Rivington Street. At the time, owner David Shemesh presented his intentions to the SLA committee for an “American cuisine” concept that would require full liquor from 10 am to 4 am daily. He was denied. Further details surrounding the new establishment remain fairly vague.

120 Rivington was formerly home to Festival Mexicano, a local hole-in-the-wall Mexican eatery which closed over the summer after years in business. The fading-but-still-imposing pink awning was quickly removed, right about the time the plywood sidewalk shed arrived onsite. Gut renovations have been ongoing here since mid-August.
