The DL (Down Low) Replaces Ludlow Manor at 95 Delancey

Posted on: March 2nd, 2012 at 4:20 pm by

We have an update to our Ludlow Manor report from this morning.  Apparently that “Down Low” menu was actually a rebranding of the entire establishment at 95 Delancey.  Ludlow Manor is no more, and Luc Carl is no longer involved. Everybody give a Bronx Cheer to The DL.

We received the following release just now:

Due to an operational oversight during the launch of Ludlow Manor late last year, that occurred simply due to an excitement surrounding the opening, management of the space at 95 Delancey Street decided to regroup and focus on doing everything possible to deliver the best experience to their guests. To ensure this, they have brought in Paul Seres, President of the New York Nightlife Association, to handle day-to-day operations. Additionally, Luc Carl is no longer involved in the project.
Today, the first step begins, as we are excited to announce the opening of The DL, a tapas restaurant located on the ground floor. The focus is on perfecting every aspect of the venue and that starts with making sure The DL is delivering high quality food and bringing a new experience to the Lower East Side. Over the next few months we will be introducing several new elements and look forward to making sure each step is executed properly, ensuring a great destination for our guests.
Executive Chef is Wesley Wobles.
