Bummer. I liked that place a lot.
It's really kind of sad.Hard times.
yeah, all the congratulatory/good luck/grand opening flowers make it seem really personal... like this was somebody's dream. despite the hard feelings of taking over the kim's space (i miss kim's multi-level experience) and participating in the disneyfication of st. mark's, i kind of feel like we witnessed another death of a dream. hard times indeed.
I never set foot in the place since Kim's left (remember when Kim's opened up on the 2nd floor above the then-Gap, on the corner of St. Mark's and 2nd Avenue???).Nothing personal against this place, but I didn't quite get what it was. Food and karaoke and, I dunno, it was confusing and not appealing.
What went wrong? Seems like such a venture should have done well here.Maybe the fact that there is already an excellent and well-established supermarket (St Mark's Market), which is open 24hours, right on the same block?Still, all the prepared foods differentiated this spot.It's unfortunate that it failed....
