Next month, The Immigrant will go before Community Board 3’s liquor licensing committee to present plans to expand into the space next-door to its current home on East Ninth Street, between First and Second Avenues.

A questionnaire submitted to the committee indicates The Immigrant Tap Room, which is taking over Change of Season’s former space at 341 East Ninth Street, will have 18 seats at four tables, plus an L-shaped front bar accommodating seven more.

In a letter to his block association, Jason Corey, the bar’s owner, says the tap room will likely offer eight draft beers. “The menu will consist of our usual cheese and meat plates, and we are also planning to add a few sandwich plates, as people are sometimes looking for more food than we can offer in the current Immigrant space,” Mr. Corey writes, adding that The Immigrant sources its bread from 9th St. Bakery, its fruit from Commodities Natural Market, and its meats from Russo’s.

If the food and drink menu submitted with the questionnaire is any indicator, the wine and beer bar will serve brews from the East Village’s own Alphabet City Brewery. Check it out below. It’s an early sample menu that’s subject to change, but it’ll give you some idea of what team Immigrant is thinking.
