A Year Later, ‘Chamusca’ Announces itself on Rivington Street
One year later, it looks like Chamusca is actually making some progress on Rivington Street. The “seafood restaurant with sustainable and seasonal menu” was originally slated to open in August 2017.
However, in the intervening year, the 800 square-foot space remained largely dormant. Not until earlier this summer did activity pick up. There is a now a black awning to replace the signage of previous tenant Mimi & Coco.
Community Board 3 approved the beer-wine application in March 2017, yet the license itself is still pending State Liquor Authority issuance. No word yet on when the restaurant will open at 92 Rivington Street.
Chamusca is owned by May Liu and Gustavo Frias, who reportedly decided that the Lower East Side was low on seafood restaurants.
The building itself has been owned by Thor Equities since 2015.
