Whoever said you don’t need the approval of others never owned a restaurant. Captains of industry Harold Dieterle and Gabe Stulman won support from Community Board 2's SLA Licensing Committee giving them the green light to proceed with their latest business ventures.
99 Bank Street will be home to The Marrow, an Italian and German-influenced dining experience and brainchild of Dieterle and partner Alicia Nosenzo. After detailing to the committee that the dimensions of the space would not be disrupted and that the closing of the establishment would come at a reasonable hour nightly, the couple received no objections. The original plan for The Marrow included a downtown Brooklyn location in Hotel 718 but the owners sought a new location after the hotel’s management was changed.
Gabe Stulman put the nail in the coffin for I Tre Merli by claiming its space at 233 West 4th street for his new Japanese Izakaya restaurant. Stulman’s untarnished operating record helped win over the committee who approved arrangements for the 32-seat space, which will serve raw fish and sashimi preparations. Currently operating under the name St. Helene LLC there is no elected opening date or known date for its predecessor’s closing.
