Another Ozumo?

March 29, 2007

Eagle-eyed downtowners may have noticed a liquor license on the landmark Cathedral Building, which is now undergoing restoration and renovation. The Feb. 28 liquor license notice, which is clearly marked 1615 Broadway (the building’s address), says the applicant is Ozumo, which is also opening a restaurant at the Broadway grand project six blocks away. The Cathedral’s large basement has been floated as a restaurant or lounge location for some time. It appears that Ozumo, perhaps in another guise, will join Van Kleef as an Uptown nightspot. Rumor has it that the Cathedral’s developer is also in negotiations with a restaurant for the building he own further up Telegraph.
