Well, that was quick. Stanton Street newcomer, Falafix, is reportedly out of business. Fried after one year on the block. The restaurant shuttered a couple weeks ago. Word on the street is that business was too slow to sustain. One particular customer complained on Yelp about finding the store “closed, with doors locked, lights off, […]

Posted April 27, 2018 at 5:00 am

With plywood shedding as we speak, it looks like the long-dormant commercial space at 90-96 Stanton Street is finally reanimated. Hard to believe that this Lower East Side storefront has been dormant – with the exception of Vice’s weed stunt last year – since the end of 2014. Contractors began dismantling the year-old enclosure this […]

Kebab House II Closed?

Last modified February 3, 2010 at 10:56 am

Last week, Ashkara; this week, Kebab House II.  Indeed, last night, we strolled past the sometimes-24-hour grub spot at 144 Orchard Street during the dinner rush, only to find it dark.

Chickpea at 147 East Houston Now Closed

Last modified September 22, 2009 at 10:21 am
