King Bee, which served Acadian cuisine (Canadian-Cajun), has closed at 424 E. Ninth St. between Avenue A and First Avenue.
The owners left this message on their King Bee website:
King Bee has closed.
We are grateful for each one of you who came through our door during the past (almost) 2 years.
Yours in good cheer,
Jeremie, Eben & Ken
On Friday, they were selling some plates, dishes and glassware for $1... (Updated: A reader said that the new owners of the restaurant were selling the leftover dishes and glassware.)
King Bee took over the space in 2014 from Exchange Alley, which opened in August 2012. Previously, Olivia, Sintir and Zi' Pep came and went in fairly quick succession.
Despite some quality operations, nothing has worked here. Doomed location?
We'll see. A tipster tells us that new owners already bought the space and are planning Korean BBQ.
