When we checked with Death & Co. on Friday about the bar’s temporary closure, word was the drinkery hoped to reopen over the weekend, or by today at the latest. Now we hear from a source close to the inside that Death & Co. remained shuttered yesterday and Saturday and that it’s unlikely to resume business tonight, though hopefully it will return sometime this week. However, there’s a bright spot amid the dreary liquor-license issues in the East Village.
DNA Info reports that the drinks den is planning an as-yet-unnamed boîte for “a quiet block of Stone Street” (the official address is actually 90 Broad Street) in the financial district, possibly as early as this summer. Compared to a few dozen seats at the original location, this one will accommodate 120 people. There will be $14 cocktails, of course, plus shareable plates like sweet-potato gnocchi. What with Weather Up Tribeca’s recent opening, it’s nice to see some serious booze beginning to flow below Canal Street.
