The construction shed has come down but the owners still have to wait before they can open.
The owners of the Lowery Bar & Kitchen, the highly anticipated bar/restaurant located at the corner of 43rd Street and 43rd Avenue, still need the City to sign off on the establishment before it can open.
Anne Muldoon, a co-owner of the bar, did not specify what permits they need. She also did not want to put a date on when they expect to open.
“We’ve given dates before and it’s backfired,” she said.
The bar has taken over the space that was previously occupied by Sofra, a Middle Eastern restaurant that closed toward the beginning of 2015. The space had been occupied by El Shater for 17 years prior to its closing in 2011.
Lowery will have about 15 bar stools as well as tables and booths. The location, which features a lot of reclaimed wood, can cater up to nearly 70 people.
The menu will include items such as grilled Bratwurst sausage, grass-fed burgers, steamed mussels, fish tacos and spicy roasted pumpkin.
The owners hoped to open last summer but experienced delays in finalizing the lease. They then aimed for the beginning of 2016.
