At the end of January, Empire Biscuit announced that they were taking a sabbatical until March...
Being officially March now, we thought we'd check in here at 198 Avenue A between East 12th Street and East 13th Street.
The plate-shaped signage now notes that they are "peelin' potatoes" ... (new menu item?)
Recent tweets point to a reopening sometime soon...
@StellaKramer yes, soon. just tinkering. :)— Empire Biscuit (@empirebiscuit) March 7, 2016
The quick-serve biscuit emporium cut back its hours during January. At the time, Empire Biscuit owner Jonathan Price told us that they were just taking a break for parts of this month. "It's a slow time of year," he said a few weeks ago. "We're doing some housekeeping. We refinished the floors in the kitchen ... for example."
