As Expected, Miss Paradis Won’t be Reopening on Prince Street
Here’s your proof of demise.
Contrary to messaging on its doorstep, Miss Paradis won’t be returning to Little Italy after all. A reader snapped this photo showing a leasing sign in the front windows.
The brown butcher paper appeared sometime in January, along with a letter stating that a “makeover” was underway for a two-week period only. Not the case. Closure was permanent, and happened before its token big apple could make an appearance on the rooftop of 47 Prince.
You’ll recall that this corner parcel was a locals parking lot until 2012. Before cocktails were considered, the spot had been earmarked for a Shake Shack. Neighbors quickly put the kibosh on that idea, though. Miss Paradis came along thereafter, yet spent more time in the planning and construction phase (4 years) than serving food (1 year).
