The individuals who announced plans at a March community board meeting that they were opening a bar/restaurant at the corner of 43rd Street and 43rd Avenue are continuing to go ahead with the venture.
The bar/restaurant, still to be called The Lowery Bar & Kitchen, was expected to open as early as May. However, since the March announcement, there has been no sign of construction.
But that is expected to change.
Kenneth Corcoran, who is a partner in the business, was at the 43rd Street location today in preparation of upcoming construction. He said that the lease has been finalized and that construction will most likely be starting next week.
He said a sidewalk construction shed will be going up soon.
Despite the delays, the plans for the bar/restaurant have not changed, Corcoran said.
The pub will be built with reclaimed wood, and will be able to cater to up to about 70 people.
The menu will include items such as grilled Bratwurst sausage, grass-fed burgers, steamed mussels, fish tacos and spicy roasted pumpkin.
