‘Seoul Chicken’ Korean BBQ Joint Opening Inside the Hexed 71 Clinton Street

It’s really crazy how one address can be so hexed as to not allow for any business to flourish. The primary example is, of course, 71 Clinton Street. A flood took out San Marzano earlier this year, though they relocated to Second Avenue.

Then there’s Itazakaya Dodom Pa. The iterations of restaurants in this location the last three years are myriad (Fat Hippo. Patate Fellow. Hachember). IDP suffered an electrical fire one year ago, and never fully recovered. A short time later, the embattled eatery underwent an management change and brand facelift to something called DOPA. It was the same concept, but equally doomed.

Another taker just stepped to the plate, though.

Brown paper was placed in the windows last week to prepare for the latest entrant at 71 Clinton Street. One that features cuisine from a country not too far from its predecessor. We’re told it’s a Korean fried chicken joint called Seoul Chicken. Exact menu items are not yet known, but your best guess is probably it.

According to employees onsite, the opening is pegged at August 28.
