1st sign of First Lamb Shabu on 14th Street
The storefront at 218 E. 14th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue is starting to shape into the first Manhattan outpost of First Lamb Shabu, a Beijing-based hot pot chain with more than 300 locations in China.
As the Commercial Observer reported back in April, the company, which has a location in Flushing, signed a 10-year lease for the space with a $20,000-per-month rent.
The storefront has been empty for several years, ever since Dunkin' Donuts (DD!) decamped for a smaller space on the block in August 2015.
