Mi Casa Es Su Casa on Orchard Street is Dead in the Water

Mi Casa Es Su Casa is officially dead in the water. Tombstone leasing signage is now advertising the space for the next (presumably) nightlife operator. What’s more, the City Marshal seized the space on behalf of the landlord. Not entirely surprising – we had placed the fifteen-month-old on our deathwatch shortly after its debut at 140 Orchard Street due to unannounced closures and sparse attendance.
Yes. The last six months have been difficult for the Latin American eatery, which always seemed to close at random times. There were at least three specific instances when the establishment shuttered without notice for consecutive days, citing “gas issues,” “renovations,” or “electrical problems.” They weren’t even open on Cinco De Mayo.
Mi Casa Es Su Casa first launched at 140 Orchard in June 2013. But the buildout itself took forever, requiring the combination of two former leather vendors at this address. Below is a photo dating back to 2010 – an eternity.
