Djerdan Burek Opening at 91 Clinton Street

Posted on: May 20th, 2011 at 6:39 am by

Just a few weeks ago, we wondered what would become of 91 Clinton Street, specifically the storefront which once housed the short-lived Xiao Qin Flower Shop.  While the southern half of the retail footprint birthed a new hair/nail salon dubbed Kanako during the winter (replaced Nelly), the sister shop remained fallow.  Until the last couple weeks, that is.  Indeed, the self-proclaimed “best burek in town” is now expanding into the Lower East Side. Mystery solved.

An employee working inside 91 Clinton the other day informed us that this location will be number five for the Astoria-based Djerdan Burek mini-empire.  A bright yellow awning, sans any outward indication of branding, now resides above the entrance.  And the obligatory newspaper clippings cover the windows.  Contrary to its appearance, though, the fast food Balkan eatery will open in two weeks.
