Popular Williamsburg haunt, Lighthouse, is on the verge of expansion into the crowded Manhattan market. Naama Tamir, half of the brother-sister team behind the OG, is planning a spinoff location in Little Italy. The former laundromat at 241 Mulberry is now marked, with teaser signage in tow.

The proposal for this aptly-named “outpost” arrives six years after Naama and her brother Assaf built the Lighthouse on Borinquen Place. Application materials submitted to Community Board 3 for beer-wine privileges show that the Mulberry Street sequel will sport an eighteen-foot counter with ten seats. Its menu is health conscious, focusing on “seasonal, fresh, vegetable, and grain-centric items.”

This is a description of the establishment on the website.

Lighthouse serves fresh, thoughtfully prepared food with bold flavors, accompanied by cutting-edge cocktails in a vibrant atmosphere. We offer a seasonal menu that is sourced, as much as possible, from local and sustainable growers and producers. We are passionate about using grass-fed, free-range meat and poultry, responsibly harvested fish and seafood, and organic and sustainable products.

The Lighthouse Outpost is slated for an early February launch. “In the first month we will be open for breakfast and lunch only and then expand our hours to include dinner,” Tamir tells us.

Meanwhile, the Outpost is already fast-tracked to approval by agreeing to CB3’s standard stipulations for beer-wine up front. It’s now a clear shot to the finish line.
