The plywood is up on part of the storefront at 127 Fourth Avenue between 12th Street and 13th Street...
The former home of The Royal, a very large sports bar with 40-plus TVs, is getting cut in half... from the looks of the DOB permit anyway (under the ASS on the plywood...)
Per the ALL-CAP stylings of the DOB: "CONVERT PART OF EXISTING 1ST FLOOR AND CELLAR, COMMERCIAL USE TO EATING AND DRINKING ESTABLISHMENT."
There isn't any info yet on who the new tenant is. Perhaps something on the quick-serve side? This stretch of Fourth Avenue has attracted Cava Grill and PokéSpot in recent months to join neighbors Liquiteria, Dos Toros, Glaze Teriyaki and Fresh. (And Melt Shop is opening soon.)
The Royal closed back in April.
