The quick-serve JoeDough sandwich shop closed in February after two-plus years at 135 First Ave.
At the time, Fork in the Road reported that proprietors Joe and Jill Dobias were keeping the space between St. Mark's Place and East Ninth Street "to focus on catering under the moniker JoeDough Catering & Events."
Now, though, there is a new for rent sign up in the front window.
Here are the details via Halstead:
Ground Floor Retail: 300sf + 200sf basement
Sublease: 3 years + 5 year option
Rent: $4,900 per month
Description: Turn Key Takeout restaurant. Fully vented to roof
Key money: Upon request
Compare this to 149 First Ave. up the block ... where the former This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef space is asking $9,500 a month for 500 square feet on the ground floor (and another 500 square feet in the basement).
Huh… So blasting crappy music at your customers in the doorway wasn't a recipe for success? Go figure...
Not surprised. Their sandwiches were pretentiously overgunked with unnecessary ingredients and overpriced as well. We could use a good bodega on that side of the street; there was one there before, in that storefront or one of the adjoining ones.
Good. Their grammatically-incorrect stencils of "Misses Doe" (instead of "Missus") signs all around drove me crazy and was enough for me to want them to leave or go down in a ball of flame. Heh.
