The dream of hot chicken in Manhattan has suffered a setback.

As Bites readers will recall, back in February we got wind of a restaurant making plans to open in the old Odessa's Cafe location on Avenue A, with the intention of serving comfort food "with a southern feel specializing in Nashville Hot Chicken."

We even got a glimpse of the planned menu.

But it isn't happening, Bites has learned — at least not in the old Odessa's location. The man behind the plan, Ravi DeRossi (Death & Co., Bourgeois Pig), said in an email, "Unfortunately we did not get approved for a liquor license in this specific space."

But, he added, "We are in the process of looking for a new space for this concept."

The dream lives on, maybe.
