After a quick makeover, the Lower East Side space that was briefly linked to Links, a sausage joint, will reopen as 188 Allen, a restaurant specializing in grilled cheese.

Mike Ilyayev, the GM, wasn’t ready to talk about the place’s concept when we stopped by yesterday, but he did reveal it would be named after its address, near Stanton Street, and would soft-open Monday.

In the meantime, you’ll have to walk just a couple of blocks over, to Little Muenster, to get your grilled cheese fix.
