1st sign of the Old Monk on Avenue B
The Old Monk awning and signage has arrived at the northeast corner of Avenue B and 11th Street ... where Sushil Malhotra, founder of Curry in a Hurry, Akbar Dawat and Café Spice, among others, is opening the Indian restaurant. We haven't heard anything else about the project just yet.
Babu Ji, the previous tenant, closed in March following the disclosure of a second wage-theft and overtime lawsuit against owners Jessi and Jennifer Singh. (Babu Ji later reemerged at 22 E. 13th St. between Fifth Avenue and University Place.)
Thanks to EVG regular Daniel for the photo!
