Fisk Shuttered; The SLAB Art Space Born at 77 Delancey
If anything, Fisk was a short-lived grocery experiment at 77 Delancey by the owners of White Slab Palace. For about a year, the tiny adjoining storefront peddled a modest selection of imported dry goods and Swedish style edibles to go. But in recent weeks, the specialty shop has gone dark, with curtains drawn and doors locked. Signage and country colors remain in place, though. Calls to the establishment confirm its closure.
