Banana Leaf slips away on East 6th Street
[EVG photo from Jan. 29]
The Sri Lankan restaurant Banana Leaf moved from its Chelsea location to 328 E. Sixth St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue ... opening in the former Spice Cove space (same owners) in December.
We noticed that they were closed on a recent weekend night.
And now after just a few months on the block, they are apparently closed for good.
Vinny & O sent along these photos from last night... showing that the place is now called Tonkatsuya...
... and they are hiring waitstaff and delivery people, per the sign on the door...
We called Banana Leaf's number... only to hear an outgoing message for Spice Cove.
