Dutch Kills, the Long Island City bar that is already one of the more spacious of the haute cocktail cribs in town, is about to get bigger. At least the bar area, anyway.
Co-owner Richard Boccato reports that an expansion of the existing bar has already begun. When complete, the bar will stretch an additional eight-to-ten feet into the back room. The wall between the bar and back room will be eliminated, though the piano back there will remain. The construction will create a third station within the bar to allow for a more fluid level of service. Work should be done by the end of this week.
