Fight Buster's Facts

Fact Sheet:
- 200 Water Group LLC (“200 Water”) the owner/operator of Buster’s Garage, has signed a 15-year lease in the retail space of 25 N Moore (The Atalanta) for the purposes of opening up a “family bistro.”
- The retail space was purchased from the building’s sponsor earlier this year by a 3rd party, Robert Golden of Golden Properties Group, LLC
- 200 Water is operated by Ross Provenzano, whose family owns the property on which the old Buster’s Garage sat
- The new establishment is unnamed as of this time, and is looking to open around March or April 2008.
- 200 Water received a unanimous recommendation for approval from Community Board #1 (CB1) in November, which is the first step in receiving their liquor license from the State Liquor Authority. No residents were aware of the vote, and therefore no one was there to oppose.
- CB1 previously denied transfer of their liquor license to a Franklin Street address after losing their West Broadway lease.
- 200 Water sought to have operating hours till 4am. CB1 denied the request and is allowing operations until midnight on weekdays and 2am on weekends.
- 200 Water has filed for their liquor license from the State Liquor Authority this week.
- Rusty Schultz, the General Manager of the space, claims that the goal is to provide “a family of four a good meal for under $100.”
- The establishment has a capacity of 98 people. In an architectural drawing that was presented to the Board, there were 30 bars seats and approximate 20 “high-top” seats at banquet tables. There were only 44 seats at “low” tables, most of which were depicted as “2-tops.”
- We have anecdotally have heard that 200 Water is planning on installing multiple televisions, with the largest one measuring 70”. They have also discussed installation of a satellite dish on our roof, which requires a board approval.
