Word is coming through the grapevine that Interstate Food & Liquor is nearing the end of the road (pun intended). Several sources indicate that business at 74 Orchard Street has been lacking, to say the least, and that the establishment is struggling to stay afloat. Timeline for the alleged closure was not provided, but Interstate is now officially on death watch.

Interstate opened here in the fall of 2011, roughly eight months after South African hangout Bunny Chow threw in the towel. If closure comes to pass, the loss would be fourth for 74 Orchard since 2008.

Same address, same fate.

    I went Once or twice. The concept was interesting, but the food wasn’t anything special and it was overpriced. Unlike Katja and Barrio Chino, they didn’t have anything that they did really well, so I never ended up going there.
