Your eyes are not deceiving you and yes, that is in English: The legendary punk club CBGB is coming back, but not as a concert venue—and not really as a bar, and not on the Bowery, nor in the East Village at all, nor in New York even. It will be a restaurant, in an airport, in Newark.
According to a report from Gothamist, the club that used to host acts like the Ramones and Talking Heads will be rebranded and run by chef Harold Moore (previously of Commerce).
When CBGB was in its heyday, the only claim to fame it had from a culinary standpoint was the pet rat that patrolled the kitchen with the chef. In this reopening, CBGB will serve “American fare in a fun environment recalling the legendary music venue.”
In that “fun environment” you can enjoy $9 deviled eggs, an $11.50 wedge salad, and a $14 cheeseburger.
Punk is dead. Long live intercontinental travel.
