Uncle Ming’s certainly had its moment, and then came a couple of others; now, according to EV Grieve, the folks behind Alchemy Consulting (Bar Seven Five at the Andaz Wall Street and the bars at the Hotel Williamsburg) are trying to take over the promising, sinister second-floor space at 225 Avenue B. Early paperwork says the concept is an “artisanal cocktail bar” with an unheard of food program featuring “locally sourced sandwiches, crudite, hummus and desserts.” [EV Grieve]
