Directly across the street from Aby Rosen’s conversion of the graffiti-covered building at 190 Bowery, the Tao Group is planning a new restaurant.

The firm behind restaurants Tao, Beauty & Essex and Stanton Social plans to ask the State Liquor Authority for a license at 199 Bowery, according to the New York Post.

The Finale nightclub and the General restaurant previously occupied the space.
