A major orthodox Jewish New York developer wants to open up a new Jewish Lower East Side kosher restaurant to replace the old Schildkraut Vegetarian Restaurant at 171 East Broadway.
Michael Bolla’s business partner Ron Castellano has spent $1.5 million to restore the building and is looking for an investor-partner to operate the new kosher facility, Kosher Today reported.
Bolla already has carried out a project to help bring back the rich culture of the Lower East Side by converting to old Forward building into luxurious condos and close to 171 East Broadway.
Bolla is a Managing Director of Douglas Elliman and has developed buildings in Soho, Tribeca, Lower East Side, Chelsea, and the Upper East Side.
