Local Favorite Jin Sushi on Broome Street is Set to Close at the End of June
Speaking of losing popular Lower East Side restaurants…
A Boogie birdie tells us that Jin, one of the more popular sushi outposts in the neighborhood, is calling it quits. The establishment will close its doors at 252 Broome Street at the end of June once the lease expires.
Apparently the decision to vacate the block was not a function of an exorbitant rent hike or the like. We are told that Jin ultimately elected not to renew their lease, noting simply that they are “tired” and that the “time has come” to depart.
Jin first opened at 252 Broome Street in June 2006. Nine years isn’t too shabby.
252 Broome Street is co-owned by Lower East Side BID Chairman of the Board Michael Forrest and SMA Equities.
