Bereket has closed
Several EVG readers passed along the news that Bereket closed for good early this morning after 19 years on East Houston and Orchard.
Jeremiah Moss first reported the impending closure yesterday.
EVG reader Bill Imprint stopped by around 1 a.m., and the quick-serve Turkish restaurant had already run out of falafels and doner kebab sandwiches with several hours to go.
As BoweryBoogie reported back in March, developer Ben Shaoul is apparently buying up the properties occupied by 196-198 Orchard and 187 East Houston for God knows what.
BB pointed out that Katz's is not part of the Shaoul land grab.
Jeremiah noted that Bereket hopes to reopen nearby on Allen Street.
