Dead water on Second Avenue?

Last week, the plywood went up at the Sea Thai Bistro at 75 Second Avenue...

There's a sign for passersby saying that you can get the "same old experience at the new location," Spice, just up the avenue at Sixth Street -- not exactly new. Of course, Spice isn't new: It opened here in August 2008. (And Eat and Spice are owned by the same empire that includes Peep and Eat...)

I'm not sure just yet if Sea is simply renovating this space...or if something else is taking over. Regardless, perhaps restaurants with "Sea" in their names just aren't meant for this stretch of Second Avenue...the next block up, Sea Salt remains empty.
