For Shalom Chai Pizza, closure is absolutely for real this time. The City Marshal paid a visit to Grand Street a couple weeks ago and seized the store on behalf of landlord Seward Park Co-op. Now the space is on the market.

According to real estate listings, the 1,100 square-foot restaurant carries a price tag of $9,500 per month. Deemed an “amazing deal” by the broker, the space comes equipped for another pizza hopeful.

This particular outcome is not at all surprising, as eviction proceedings first began in late May with a notice posted to the security gates. Just before Shabbos, no less. The Kosher dairy spot did remain open while legal matters were discussed, but it was a last gasp.

Through the drama, though, we figured that permanent shutter would be the ultimate result here.
