Butcher Bar Smoked out of Hell Square
Butcher Bar was on the chopping block, and couldn’t survive the fierce conditions in Hell Square.
The Queens-based barbecue joint shuttered its Lower East Side location Sunday evening after a year-and-a-half stint on Orchard Street.
The establishment did not immediately return our request for comment.
Butcher Bar is the latest in a string of short-lived restaurants at 146 Orchard, an address familiar with failure. Before the smokehouse arrived in April 2017, the last occupants were APL and Orchard House back in 2013. Otherwise, vacancy has been the name of the game here.
Butcher Bar is survived by its original Astoria restaurant.
