Baby Brasa Shutters Allen Street Flagship After Less than 2 Years
Baby Brasa, the Peruvian chicken joint that rose to fame on the chiseled back of chef-model Franco Noriega, is down one. Its flagship location on the Lower East Side recently went dark, ending barely two years of service at 129 Allen Street.
You may have noticed that the gates have been closed for the last several days. Or that no one picks up the phone. Nevertheless, a call to the West Village location – which is the sequel space – confirmed the news.
It’s unclear at the moment why the establishment closed down. However, it’s worth noting that ownership became mired in controversy after their prolific art program – The New Allen – commissioned that infamous dick mural painted on the facade of 303 Broome Street.
Word on the street is that this outpost might relocate uptown.
Baby Brasa debuted at 129 Allen Street in July 2016
