To get ready for on Fifth Avenue at President Street, is applying for a liquor license and has successfully jumped over the first hurdle.
At a Community Board 6 permits and licenses meeting on Monday night, the committee voted unanimously to approve a recommendation to transfer the shuttered booze license over to the “finer diner” when it opens.
Here’s Park Slope, a local blog, broke the news on Thursday that Dizzy’s, which has been on Ninth Street and Eighth Avenue since the late 1990s, will open a second location where Comida has been since November 2010.
But the question circulating the blogosphere is: Will Dizzy’s be able to survive on the “cursed” corner?
After Comida first opened, . But we were not the ony ones talking about a curse.
The conversation, which first started on Brooklyian, explored if the space, on Fifth Avenue at the corner of President Street, is indeed cursed or if the restaurants were just unsuccessful.
Before Playa and Cabana Bar, Night & Day, Lookout Hill, Biscuit BBQ and a laundromat occupied the building. And all of them failed to stay open for long.
But, during their presentation to Community Board 6, Dizzy’s owners Matheo Pisciotta and Ben Hoen showed no fear in opening a second location in the allegedly cursed corner.
“I am confident that our meatloaf is good enough to put an end to the curse,” Pisciotta said in jest on Monday night.
The new diner will have 74 seats and the menu will stay the same.
They are pursuing a liquor license for their new space, the Ninth Street location serves beer and wine, because they want the Fifth Avenue locale to have more of a nighttime vibe.
“Dizzy’s has the ability to operate as a bar afterhours. Our menu amends itself to be a late-night place,” Pisciotta explained. “Plus, it is hard to operate in this city successfully without one.”
