A tweet from yesterday.
@evgrieve Not sure if you've covered this, but the Subway on First Ave near 13th Street has been closed the last few weeks. Chain retreat?— Adam Fusfeld (@afusfeld) October 10, 2012
We hadn't noticed. Sure enough. Late yesterday afternoon.
We called the restaurant. The line went dead after 10 or so rings.
There aren't any notes on the front door. But there is one sign of doomsday:
The Wacky Wok menu!
Perhaps this closure is temporary. (But wouldn't you leave a sign or something telling people that, say, due to a plumbing issue, the restaurant will be temporarily closed?)
Meantime, do you remember the last time that a franchise closed around here? Maybe the Dunkin' Donuts on Second Avenue?
