Dari Mediterranean Restaurant Out, The Pearl Room Coming In

Dari Mediterranean Restaurant [8518 3rd Ave] shuttered just before Summer Stroll 2015 on 3rd Ave kicked off for this season.
It didn't take long for another to swoop in. As it turns out, just before the conclusion of the fourth and final Summer Stroll a month ago, an overhead banner can be seen hanging on the awning letting onlookers know that The Pearl Room (corner of 82nd and 3rd), the same one Woody Allen was spotted dining in, will be taking over sometime later in the Fall.  A request for information regarding their plans on whether it's a move or an expansion, have gone unanswered.  However, their SLA application was heard at yesterday's CB10 meeting. If you recall, prior to Dari's renovation another seafood restaurant Beebo occupied it between 2012-2014 before it too, folded.

Update 9/28: CB10 confirms that The Pearl Room is, in fact moving to 8518, and vacating 8201 3rd Ave. We assume brokers will begin marketing that restaurant space relatively soon.
