As if by design, no sooner did Clinton Furniture & Mattress close than nightlife swoop in for the taking. The mom-and-pop store shuttered last month. Now a few weeks later, we see what’s going on.
The five-month-old iteration of Speedy Romeo Pizzeria is looking to expand its dining room into 61 Clinton Street. Its proposal – an alteration to a full liquor license – was submitted to Community Board 3 this month for consideration (“op/alt/extend license into adjacent store at 61 Clinton St”). Ownership hopes to expand overall dining to 34 tables with the annex next door, including 6 counter seats and 9 bar stools. See diagram below.
Given that this space was previously an unlicensed store, and within a saturated area, there might be stronger scrutiny.
