El Sombrero Santacon, December 2012
Following up on a story we first broke last week…
What we know so far is that El Sombrero is to shutter, and that Artichoke Pizza is taking over the corner restaurant space. Application documents on file with Community Board 3 now provide more detail on what neighbors might expect here. Aside from the pizza, of course.
Whereas the Hat was a family-style Mexican restaurant, it appears the Artichoke folks hope to capitalize more on the nightlife component by staying open much later. Next Monday night, ownership hopes to obtain approval for an OP license for 108 Stanton Street with operating hours of 11am to 4am daily. After all, this is the corner of Ludlow and Stanton. Hell Square central – a saturated area as defined by CB3.
Based on the deliverables, it appears the contracts still aren’t finalized. The CB3 application package shows two partially-executed signature pages for the sale of assets agreements.
El Sombrero will likely stay on the block until the “early December,” according to a report by EV Grieve.
How do you feel about an Artichoke Pizza replacing El Sombrero?
