‘Doka Square’ Departs Delancey After 3 Years

Posted on: July 18th, 2018 at 5:04 am by

Doka Square, the ambitious pan-Asian restaurant at the southwest corner of Eldridge and Delancey Streets, is now kaput. Business concluded earlier this month after just barely three years on the block.

The enormous, 5,000 square-foot space is now on the market, repped by Citi Habitats, according to onsite signage. It’s pitched as a whole for $19,995 per month. Or there is also an option to divide the space into three separate stores – the largest would be 2,272 square-feet for $9,995 per month, another 1,800 square-foot store for $6995, or the smallest at 1,100 square-feet for $4,995. As expected, bars and restaurants are sought for this huge footprint.

Doka Square bowed in August 2015, and served a menu of “Asian-influenced small plates.” The modern vibe and three-store dining room often seemed a bit too large, and was rarely at full capacity.

So, now another previously unlicensed corner is available. Don’t be surprised to see a club take this space.
