Ninja Grill Hibachi on Essex Street Reopens Tomorrow
In case you’ve been going through withdrawal, the Ninja Grill hibachi restaurant on Essex Street is set to return tomorrow. Thus concluding a three-month stay on the sidelines.
As previously reported, the kitschy Ninja Grill opened at 103 Essex Street back in December. It appeared well received; based on initial Yelp reviews, the fast food joint garnered an overall positive rating (shill or otherwise). Three months later, however, the city stopped by to shut it down.
Department of Buildings was dispatched due to purported unauthorized gas use. According to the ECB violation on file, gas had been “supplied to building without inspections and certifications by DOB” and “new gas equipment installed” without authorization.
We are told Ninja Grill will reopen for business tomorrow.
