The troubled journey of the Hummus Shop at 101 Ludlow Street has finally reached its conclusion. Closure befell the late-night eatery this week, resulting in the placement of a leasing banner by Sinvin. Behind the glass wall, meanwhile, furnishings are awaiting the eventual removal.

According to the Sinvin website, rent here is $6,500 per month, double the asking price that we reported back in April.

Hummus Shop debuted inside the Ludlow Residence compound back in 2012 after over a year of planning and renovation. Earlier this year, they closed for “remodeling,” but eventually reopened.

Perhaps the closure has something to do with the commercial condo being on the open market for $220,000. For the last two months, the narrow, 800 square-foot store near the dorm entrance has been seeking new ownership at this high cost.
