You’ll Need $5K to Rent the Old ‘BYGGYZ’ Sandwich Shop on Clinton Street

Posted on: March 29th, 2019 at 5:08 am by

With the overhyped brick-and-mortar of BYGGYZ dead in the ground nearly a year, its former Clinton Street headquarters is now up for grabs.

Real estate listings have been circulating for the last couple months.

Asking price for the 1,000 square-foot store (split equally between ground floor and basement) at 37-39 Clinton Street is $4,680 per month. Special attention is also given to the electric kitchen and lack of venting, the perfect combination for a dumpling shop, ice creamery, or cafe.

It’s no wonder that BYGGYZ didn’t survive. Dewey Dufresne’s well-regarded sandwich spot spent more time in build-out mode than actually serving the Lower East Side. The grab-and-go establishment debuted in September 2017; nine months later, word dropped of its demise.

While there was a brief reprieve that kept the business afloat through last fall, it seems that the search for investors didn’t quite bear fruit. The sandwich shop ultimately shuttered in September.
