As a follow-up to our post from yesterday, Empire Biscuit owner Jonathan Price (he recently bought out his partner Yonadav Tsuna, who moved to the West Coast) assured us in an email yesterday that the quick-serve restaurant at 198 Avenue A is just taking a break for parts of this month.
"It's a slow time of year," he said. "We're doing some housekeeping. We refinished the floors in the kitchen Tuesday, for example. It's been over two years and there's just a lot of maintenance to do."
The restaurant has posted two "closed for brief winter break" signs on the front door so far this month.
Starting tonight, EB will be open Thursday night through Sunday night during January here between East 12th Street and East 13th Street.
As for the Empire Biscuit website that was offline, the domain issue is being resolved and they should be back live soon... online and behind the counter.
