Ed’s Lobster Bar Annex on Clinton Shutters

Posted on: October 9th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

Making the rounds last week was a real estate listing that had Ed’s Lobster Bar Annex on the open market. The business at 25 Clinton Street remains for sale, carrying a price tag of $265,000 in key money. So-called “lobstah love” dried up. Indeed, this week it’s curtains for the fourteen-month-old seafood shack.

The gates have been shuttered the past few days, and calls to headquarters confirm the demise. This latest Clinton closure comes on the heels of losing the decade-old 1492 restaurant.

The Falafel Shop on Rivington Takes a ‘Maintenance’ Break, Should Return Next Week

You may have noticed that the Falafel Shop on Rivington Street wasn’t open all week. An explanation as to why didn’t actually materialize until yesterday. According to a laminate on the shuttered gate, the popular four-year-old Mediterranean joint closed for routine “maintenance,” but should reopen “middle of next week. Eyal Tov founded the Falafel Shop […]

In Which a Hell Square Egg Toss Turns Violent

There is a sense among some that Hell Square is regressing to its former violent self after a brief period of baby-step progress. No more, claim neighbors in the DMZ. Case in point was a rowdy incident this past Monday night (late) involving a crew of revelers outside the Hotel Indigo. A tipster tells us that […]

The City is About to Screw the LES Waterfront Again with this 1,000-Foot Tower

The city will screw the Lower East Side waterfront by allowing this 1,000-foot tower to proceed. Indeed, the Department of City Planning reversed course this week, and will now hear the case for this monstrosity. This despite the ongoing litigation over the contested few parcels on the backside of Extell’s One Manhattan Square. It’s certainly a […]

St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street is Dead, for Real This Time

Okay, so now it’s really happened. Again. The reincarnated St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street – also known as Rivington F+B – is officially kaput. This past Wednesday was its final night in business. The gates are now shuttered for good, capping a decade (including a year-long hiatus) for the establishment. The closure follows two months […]

MTA Brushes off Vehement Local Opposition to ‘Gracias Mama’ Entrance on Rutgers Street

The MTA sees nothing wrong with having a restaurant entrance mere feet from a bustling subway station. Specifically that of Gracias Mama, whose principals (Koorosh Bakhtiar and Nima Garos) are trying to alter their method of operation, which could become a harbinger of overcrowding in a small area. The bold choice to move the front […]

    Along with 1492 and Ed’s Lobster, the space that housed Frankies and the short-lived Francesca is now up for rent. Hopefully losing all of these restaurants at once isn’t an opening for the street to turn Ludlow. All of the restaurants on Clinton have been a calm, comparably livable contrast to the screaming and chaos west of Essex.

  • Old Man

    Completely agree. I love what Clinton St has become and if it should ever dive into the utter embarrassment ‘Hell Square’ has become, well shoot us now.

  • Resident

    The management at Ed’s were not very nice at all. For a restaurant that had very few customers, they didn’t make many feel welcome. Hopefully something better and more neighborhood friendly will take it’s place.

  • ed ;s is overpriced especially for that neighborhood.
