Lulu & Mooky’s at 129 Allen is Closed

Posted on: October 6th, 2010 at 6:27 am by

Time to pack up the test tubes and Bunsen burners; lab class has ended for Lulu & Mooky’s at 129 Allen Street.  They were not saved by the proverbial bell.  Indeed, in response to our Red Mango post the other day, one reader informed us that the ice creamery closed for good about two weeks ago.

It was around this time last year that the mad-science, liquid nitrogen ice cream joint was first introduced to the neighborhood. The overall response to their product offering seemed to be positive.  But whenever we passed by, there wasn’t often a crowd. In the end, their high-tech gourmet venture failed to find its footing inside a year.  Just proves the significant barriers to entry in the local frozen treats scene. It’s tough to compete against Il Laboratorio del Gelato!

Meanwhile, the same informant noted that there’s been some renovation inside the storefront, but no conclusive leads on the new tenant as yet.
