Following last year’s annexation of 77 Orchard Street, business partners Erwin Schrottner and Andrew Chase are once again expanding their well-loved and weisswurst-y (yet vegetarian-friendly) Café Katja, this time into the space at 75 Orchard Street, Bowery Boogie reports. Schrottner and Chase are looking to knock down the wall between the two storefronts and expand the coverage of their liquor license. If approved, Katja will occupy three storefronts on Orchard Street, a dramatic change from the tiny 25-seat café that opened five years ago, and huge news in general for the Lower East Schnitzel.
