Gyro Joint to Replace Vacant Sugar Cafe on Allen Street
Sugar Cafe shuttered almost two years ago. Ultimately done in by a rent hike, the 24-hour refueling spot held down the northeast corner of Allen and Houston Streets for well over a decade.
Landord Serge Hoyda spent the interim period renovating and upgrading 200 Allen Street, as well as the adjacent tenements at 175-177 East Houston. (Remember Preserve 24?)
Now a new occupant for the former Sugar Cafe. We are told that a Middle Eastern eatery called Empire Gyro Kebab is opening in its place. And like its predecessor, it’ll also stay open 24/7. Build-out just began within the last couple weeks, as signaled by the brown butcher paper in the windows.
Empire Gyro Kebab is expected to bow sometime around Thanksgiving.
Is this a good time to reiterate that we still miss Bereket?
