Marshals seize brand-new Cafe Hanover on St. Mark's Place

Wow. That was fast. The Cafe Hanover on St. Mark's Place has been seized by the marshal's office...




Many thanks to EV Grieve reader Ryan for the shots... no word on the fate of the U2/2U karaoke portion of the empire here at the former Mondo Kim's.

The grand opening was just last month!

Maybe I'm just a cynic, but I wonder who told these people a karaoke bar on a block like this would fly?

Wow, fast indeed. I wonder how much $$$ was sunk into this place.

EV Grieve said...

@goggla Yeah, must have cost a fortune to gut-renovate the old Mondo Kim's space.

Ah, I'm glad to see the hex I put on the place is working.

No idea why they were shut down, but when I strolled through that one time to check it out, I was struck by the breadth of food offerings here. You could get anything from a deli sandwich to a korean "bibim bop" and pretty much whatever in between. I saw crazy stuff like plates of bulk sushi sitting on the salad bar, not that far from the steam tables. Just crazy for me at least, the thought of eating sushi like that. But there was a lot of food sitting around this place. That's what I first thought of when I see the shutdown.

i like the sign, "CLOSE." as in, "close. nice try."

they should have kept all the funereal opening-day flowers for the actual funeral.
