Barely two months in the grave, the old Via Tribunali space in Hell Square is already be shopped around for new occupants. Several real estate listings have trickled through the faucet of Craigslist. From the look of it, the 800 square-foot ground-level space at 122 Ludlow is going for a pretty penny.

We came across a number of postings the last few days, and while Via Tribunali is not name-checked, this is the only restaurant with a wood-burning brick over on Ludlow between Rivington and Delancey. The photos don’t lie, either. To open an establishment here, the newcomer will need to shell out $12,000 in monthly rent, plus a wallet-busting “fixture fee” of $65,000. (Some of the listings have a lower price of $10,750 without key money mentioned)

You’ll recall that the Lower East Side outpost of the Seattle eatery shuttered in early November without any announcement to patrons or the community at large. The closure transpired after lots of staff shakeups and a decline in quality. Via Tribunali first landed at 122 Ludlow as part of “Little Seattle” in March 2012. The pizzeria arrived at roughly the same time as its northwest cousin, Caffe Vita, which, it should be noted, remains open.
