It looks like it was more than “electrical repairs” that shuttered Orchard House in the Lower East Side. Bowery Boogie reports that the empty-since-January building on 146 Orchard Street will be taken over by Peter Chimos, the owner of Frankie & Johnnie’s Steakhouse in Midtown, along with Food Network's Aaron Sanchez.

The 35-table restaurant and bar is said to focus on Mexican fare and will be called Alegre. [BB]
