Gouie NY Principal Takes Lalito Space on Bayard

When Winnie’s karaoke dive departed its original Bayard Street home in 2015, Lalo was quick to capitalize. Elements of El Rey (chef Gerardo Gonzalez) and Dudley’s (Mateusz Lilpop and Ben dos Remedios) later imparted the Mexican-Cali concept called Lalo.

(Winnie’s eventually found a new home on East Broadway three years ago.)

Now the life cycle of 104 Bayard Street continues. Last month, Lalito, successor of Lalo, itself faded to oblivion. In its place, the potential rebirth as an Izakaya.

According to paperwork on file with Community Board 3, the corporate entity of the latter business is changing, with three new principals taking over – David Komurek, Keisuke Kasagi, Yudai Kanayama. You might recognize the latter two names as affiliated with both Davelle on Norfolk Street, and Essex Market newcomer, Gouie NY.

The new entity will be called Dr. Clark.

Despite the 100% corporate change, though, it appears this application (full liquor) will not be heard at committee.
