The Marshal seizes the former Red & Gold Boil on St. Mark's Place

Back in early October, the rather unfortunately named Red & Gold Boil (sounds like a topic for a WebMD search) closed after 13 months in business at 30 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.

The sign on the door from management made it seem as if the place may reopen with a new concept. (We look forward to serving you again, etc...)

The notice of eviction that recently arrived has now been joined by a note from the Marshal, announcing that the landlord has legal possession of the space...

The restaurant opened in August 2014 as the Red & Gold Crab Shack... somewhere along the line the boil replace the crab shack.

I'm so sad a small local business has closed, instead of yet another chain store.

And I was so looking forward to all night bobbing sessions at The Happy Clam.

Knowing this neighborhood, the new concept will be turning seafood into alcohol.

But only if they're tender clams ... said...

Anon @6:41 PM, your idea has jumped the shark, we're living in 2015 for crying out loud, not 2010 anymore:

Giovanni, I like the way you think.

So sad to lose this place (despite the unappetizing name). They did a very generously sized steamed lobster for $18! Not just a similarly priced lobster roll as Luke's but a whole tail and claws lobster of about a pound and a half. I will really miss this, as whole steamed lobster is hard to find in the EV.
