Reader report: AlphaBet Cafe will not reopen
AlphaBet Cafe closed on April 1 … signs on the diner at East 14th Street and Avenue B pointed to a renovation/remodel …
However, yesterday, EVG reader Patrick heard from the building's landlord that AlphaBet Cafe will NOT be returning… the gate was up and workers were inside cleaning out the space. The landlord said that the Cafe owners had been behind in rent … and they voluntarily turned over the keys ahead of an eviction.
The landlord indicated that he did have an interested party in the restaurant… and hoped to have it rented in the coming weeks.
The folks at AlphaBet Cafe seemed to have a tough time last year … the DOH closed them down several times for various infractions …
