New York Shitty Day Ender: A New Cafe On Franklin?

105 franklin

Yes folks, if this notice for a liquor license hearing (which has long since come to pass) in the window is any indication we’re slated to get another eatery at 105 Franklin Street. I researched the applicant, VPC Projects LLC, and all I could find is this restaurant bar will be called Veronica. Anyone have the 411 about this place? If so, please share via comments. Thanks!

UPDATE, 12/20/2009: It has been brought to my attention that this establishment will, in fact, be a bar and the people behind it operate a watering hole in Manhattan called “Heathers” (see comments). This begs the question as to when and where they will open a third venue called “Jason Dean”. I won’t even go into the drink specials

I can only hope one of their cocktails will be “a Norwegian in the boiler room”— because I am not drinking anything blue coming from “Veronica”.

  2. I’m curious about those repeated brick in-fill areas on the building fronts. Were these once storefronts, or what?

  4. Yes, these were once commercial storefronts. They were converted to residential and many now are reverting back to commercial space. My feelings about this are mixed. There’s a dearth of affordable apartments in this neighborhood already.

  6. Don’t know why they’re calling it a neighborhood cafe. The owners have a place in Manhattan and pride themselves on offering gluten free beer which is nice but… we’re talking alcohol here.

    I don’t know where the line is between “cafe” and “bar” but I don’t think they’re planning to offer food, so that makes it a bar, for me. Right across the street from Shayz Lounge (bar), a corner away from Pencil Factory (bar) and whatever the former Lost and Found is now called (still a bar). Not the swellest thing.

  8. Now I remember. The owners of this pending establishment are the people who own/run Heathers, in Manhattan. BAR.

  10. I noticed that the liquor license hearing was posted after that hearing date. Very sneaky!
