A Spanish fast-food chain is bound for the Lower East Side and an Italian risotteria is headed for the East Village, by the looks of Community Board 3’s newly released May calendar of meetings.

100 Montaditos — a Spanish chain serving mini sandwiches and sangria that plans to bring 20 locations to New York City, according to DNA Info — will plead its case for a beer-and-wine license at 177 Ludlow Street during the May 20 meeting of C.B. 3’s liquor licensing committee.

Meanwhile, Risotteria Melotti, a restaurant near the Italian city of Romeo and Juliet, intends to open its first U.S. outpost at 309 East Fifth Street. The eatery, operated by a Verona-based family of risotto producers, will feature “a wide range of risotto prepared according to typical Italian techniques and methods, using authentic and genuine ingredients only,” according to its Website. You can see the preview menu here.

These aren’t the only newcomers that will ask the committee to bless their booze bids. Hop over to C.B. 3’s Website for the full run-down, including Papaya King’s application for beer, Heart n’ Soul’s plea for a sidewalk cafe and oh, so much more.
