Nearly 16 months after a fire ripped through 116 E. Fourth St., there's news about the tenant, Mono + Mono.
DNAinfo reports that repairs are underway at the restaurant that served Korean fried chicken and was known for playing a collection of upwards of 30,000 classic jazz albums.
Per DNAinfo's Lisha Arino:
[T]the owner hopes to reopen in about three weeks, said Sung Chung, manager and event coordinator.
Before the April 2013 fire, Mono+Mono was only open for dinner, serving its signature twice-fried chicken with soy garlic sauce, alongside traditional pan-fried Korean pancakes. Now, it will be open during the day as well, with a slightly different concept, Chung said. He declined to give additional details.
The city approved the renovation work back on Aug. 8, per DOB records. However, a full vacate order remains on the space between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
