Hanjoo owners bringing Korean food to former Jewel of India space on East 6th Street

Well, Jewel of India lasted less than a year at at 324 E. Sixth St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue…

The space won't be empty for long, though. The owners of the recently closed Hanjoo on St. Mark's Place are opening a Korean restaurant here, according to documents (PDF!) on file at the Community Board 3 website. This is one of the items on tonight's CB3/SLA committee docket. (This application for a beer-wine license is not subject to a board vote.)

There isn't any other information about the new restaurant … other than that they will serve Korean food. Hanjoo quietly closed at the beginning of the month after two-plus years at 12 St. Mark's Place.

Thanks to Vinny and O for the photos!

they have a brutal exhaust motor, the only saving grace was they always closed by 10 pm. One night I realized the glasses in my cupboard were clinking due to the vibrations from the restaurants. Of course this is unhealthy to residents, but always the transient restaurants come first.
