Three Months Later, the Lucky Bee is Finally Getting its Gas Turned on

Posted April 18, 2016 at 5:00 am

​The Lucky Bee opened eight weeks ago at 252 Broome Street, formerly occupied by Jin Sushi. Since then, the restaurant has been operating in force without the benefit of cooking gas, the hookup for which mustn’t be taken for granted in the wake of the Second Avenue Explosion. That might change this week, though. As […]

The pollination of 252 Broome Street begins this week. Jin Sushi is in the rearview, and the Lucky Bee is buzzing. (Okay, enough of that.) The handwriting is on the new vestibule windows, announcing the opening date to the public as this Thursday, 5:30pm. With former Fat Radish chef Matty Bennett and partner Rupert Noffs now […]

The Lucky Bee to Open on Broome Street the First Week of January

The Lucky Bee is buzzing Broome Street. Opening is imminent. You’ll recall that an exhorbitant rent hike forced sushi stalwart Jin Sushi to close its restaurant at 252 Broome Street over the summer. The purported increase – Samy Mahfar is landlord – ended a successful ten-year run for the business. (Don’t believe the imposter a […]

It’s done. Jin Sushi ended its fortuitous ten-year residency on Broome Street last week. When news first broke this past spring, we understood that ownership “opted” not to renew and that “the time had come” to conclude operations. Not so, apparently. The sushi stalwart, on the block for a decade, was reportedly felled by an exorbitant […]

One of the more popular Lower East Side restaurants, Jin Sushi, officially closes for good on Saturday. Three more days. A sandwich board outside the establishment displays the countdown. Its departure was expected, yet no less upsetting to longtime fans and, of course, the owners and employees. When news first broke this past spring, we […]

AAA Ichiban Finds a New Home on Broome Street as ‘Jin Sushi’

Posted August 10, 2015 at 5:10 am

At first sight, it would appear that Jin Sushi was moving across the mall to 283 Broome Street. A new canopy onsite pimps that moniker as the business name. However, while the Japanese restaurant is in fact closing, this is seemingly a case of calculated deception. We called the real Jin for confirmation; their tenure actually concludes […]

The low-key block of Broome Street between Orchard and Ludlow is seeing a whole lot of activity these days. Commercial stock is currently in transition, all while works on Essex Crossing Site 1 ramps up. We saw Munch Gallery depart the scene earlier this year and Kottu House take up residence. Local favorite Jin Sushi is […]

Local Favorite Jin Sushi on Broome Street is Set to Close at the End of June

Last modified May 6, 2015 at 11:18 am

Speaking of losing popular Lower East Side restaurants… A Boogie birdie tells us that Jin, one of the more popular sushi outposts in the neighborhood, is calling it quits. The establishment will close its doors at 252 Broome Street at the end of June once the lease expires. Apparently the decision to vacate the block […]
