PokéSpot SoHo Now Swimming with the Fish
Just under two years in business, PokéSpot on Cleveland Place – sibling to the Union Square original – is now swimming with the fish. Gone.
By customer accounts, the fast-casual seafood joint shuttered a couple weeks ago. Google says that they’re permanently closed, and the number to this spot rings unanswered.
And the space is already for rent.
Real estate listings began to surface right around the time of its ouster, pimping the 1,100 square-foot restaurant space for an astronomical $18,000 per month (five-year lease).
It’s available ASAP, which means it’ll probably sit empty for nine months before anything happens.
PokéSpot opened in May 2017, and tried to capitalize on the cutthroat lunch scene. Competition is fierce in these parts, from Prince Street Pizza and Cava to Taim and Sweetgreen, it’s a crowded field. Next.
