The Mediterranean-themed restaurant at 167 Avenue A between East 10th Street and East 11th Street has now been closed for nearly two weeks… the sign on the door points to a renovation…
… though a neighbor says that there hasn't been much renovating happening here.
The newly renovated space is on the market … the rent is $16,500 (and $650,000 key money). Per the listing at LoopNet:
GORGEOUS ESTABLISHMENT — the decor and atmosphere. The place gives you a feeling that you are somewhere on an old boat in the sea. Plus, the candles all over the place makes it very romantic.
The restaurant, an offshoot of Ethos Meze on Third Avenue and East 36th Street, opened here last July 2.
