Orchard House Space Now on the Market
Whether or not those ambiguous electrical repairs were an actual emergency, or even a truth at all, the Orchard House is seemingly on its way outta the Lower East Side. That’s what Misrahi Realty would have you believe, anyway.
You’ll recall that last week, computer printouts announced the closure due to said utility maintenance. The same day we published our story, a real estate listing materialized on Craigslist for the year-old business at 146 Orchard Street. Yup, the troubled restaurant is on the open market for an unspecified amount in key money. Or, a “rare true turnkey opportunity.” Monthly rent for the mid-block location is only $18,000 (or 1.8 million pennies).
Okay, now that we’ve seen two nightlife ventures overly-hyped and ultimately fail, how about something that actually serves the Lower East Side community…?
