Nicky's is now Vicky's on East Second Street

The other night EV Grieve reader Steven passed along word that Nicky's on Second Street just east of Avenue A was now called Vicky's ...

Sure enough... rather subtle switch from the N to V...

Simple name switcheroo?

More than that, actually. Nicky's co-owner Quynh Dang told us that they sold the Second Street location in the late summer ... and the new owner called it Vicky's! (Which gave Quynh a chuckle.)

So, if you want your Nicky's fix, you have two choices now:

99-C Nassau St.
New York, NY 10038
Phone: 212-766-3388
Online ordering via Seamless Web available for this location

311 Atlantic Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11201
Phone: 718-855-8838

I dare someone were to climb up there and change it to 'Ricky's' .... 'Micky's'?

Can a business owner get any lazier?

I think its more about dishing out a thousand bucks for a new awning vs. $5 for some paint...I really don't know how much an awning costs but I can't imagine including installation its cheap.

Nicky's Pho on 4th failed & now they close the 2nd street shop? I guess they just gave up on the East Village!

@East Village Eats: maybe the East Village gave up on Nicky's

@Stedman: replacing an awning ain't cheap
