Reader report: Mono + Mono hoping for a mid-summer return
Last that we heard, the owners of Mono + Mono were hoping to be serving their Korean fried chicken (and playing some of their classic jazz albums) on East Fourth Street again by last fall.
However, the place has yet to reopen since the fire here at 116 E. Fourth St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue back on April 21, 2013.
Now, an EVG reader heard from workers at the space that they are planning to reopen mid-summer. (The reader also noted that a pile of vinyl records that survived the fire were sitting on the bar.)
There is an approved permit on file with the city for a "roof replacement and removal of existing fire damaged mechanical equipment." March 23 was the proposed job start.
There's nothing about a reopening date on Mono + Mono's website or social media properties. A full vacate for the address is still in effect, per the DOB.
