‘Hecho en Dumbo’ to Shutter After More than 8 Years on the Bowery

Posted on: June 5th, 2018 at 5:05 am by

Hecho en Dumbo is closing up shop. Management officially disseminated the news Sunday evening, thus concluding more than eight years on the Bowery.

The imminent shutter – this Saturday (June 9) – was expected these last several months. Indeed, we first spotted real estate listings for the commercial condo at 354 Bowery exactly one year ago.

Below is the message to the Hecho en Dumbo faithful:

Hecho en Dumbo will be closing its doors for good next Saturday night, June 9th, after over 8 years on the Bowery.

We are thrilled that since our humble start as a pop-up in DUMBO over a decade ago, Mexican cuisine continues to evolve and flourish in our city and it has been a privilege to be a part of it.

Please join us this week to say hello and a final goodbye.     More details on a send off party to follow.

Salud!

Chef Danny, Ethan, & Issel

What started as a pop-up endeavor, Hecho en Dumbo opened this brick-and-mortar Mexican restaurant on the Bowery in 2010. It replaced the beloved (second incarnation of) Marion’s Continental which closed in August 2008. That venue held court at 354 Bowery for eighteen years before selling off the business.
