Agendas for CB3 Manhattan’s meetings were released yesterday, and from the looks of it, City Grit founder Sarah Simmons is angling to score a full liquor license at 100 Forsyth Street, where small-plates restaurant Grotto closed earlier this year. In addition to serving “elevated Southern dishes,” Simmons is reportedly focusing her menu on fried chicken and Champagne at Birds & Bubbles, which sounds like an excellent plan to us.
