Satsko on Eldridge Closed for Nonpayment of Taxes

Over on Eldridge Street, the taxman cometh and then he taketh.  The unlucky victim here? Satsko at 245 Eldridge.

The security gates have been drawn the last few days, with bright orange “seizure” stickers pasted prominently in the windows. There is also a letter which reads as follows:

This property has been seized for nonpayment of New York State taxes.  All persons are warned not to remove or tamper with this property, in any matter, under penalty of the law.

Satsko opened at 245 Eldridge in early 2007 as a much larger offshoot of their Alphabet City location. Within no time, the bi-level eatery became a neighborhood favorite to many, eventually earning an average four stars on both Yelp and Citysearch. Now their rep is tax evasion. In light of this state government seizure, it’s safe to say that their days of serving sushi and sake at this address are done.

Patrons seeking the Satsko taste can still visit Sake Bar Satsko on East Seventh Street.
