PM owners (and brothers) Kyky and Unik are poised to increase their footprint on the meatpacking district: Theyve acquired the space that formerly housed Sascha and plan to reopen it in June as an as-yet-unnamed three-part venue thatll include a 24-hour sandwich spot with bakery, a casual Italian bistro, and an exclusive lounge with black-on-black dcor that will host D.J.s and live music.
For the bistro, Kyky tells us hes negotiating with a noted chef from a very famous place in New York to hammer out an eclectic menu: If someone wants a steak tartare, a risotto, seafood pasta, or burger, we will be able to provide that, he assures us.
Sure, the meatpacking district needs another bistro (Italian or otherwise) like it needs a big-ass billboard, but credit Kyky for the other project hes working on: In three months hell launch Bistro de Paris in a 3,500-square-foot space at 129th Street and Lenox Avenue. The look? A mix of Pastis and Balthazar. The menu? Similar to both. Presumably there wont be as many limos parked outside well, unless you count Bubbas motorcade. Daniel Maurer
