At approximately 10:30 last night, a fire was sparked in the ground level of 71 Clinton Street, at the corner of Rivington. The restaurant affected by the small blaze was Izakaya Dodom Pa, an establishment that has seen its fair share of identity changes over the years.

We were told by first responders that the small fire was likely electrical and “in the walls,” but quickly extinguished. And no one was reported hurt. While a portion of the facade was completely charred and torn asunder from firefighter action, Dodom Pa itself remains largely intact. Basically looks worse than it probably is – wood strewn about the sidewalk, menu case on the ground, shattered glass, etc.

No word just yet on how this will affect business.

Last time 71 Clinton Street made headlines was back in April when real estate listings had the restaurant on the market for an undisclosed sum.
