After nearly 13 months in business, Kamola Akhmedova, the owner of Afandi Grill at 149 First Ave., has announced the closure of her restaurant between Ninth Street and 10th Street.
Here's part of her farewell via Instagram:
[W]e would like to announce that we are closing our physical location permanently. No, Afandi is not going anywhere. We will continue as a #catering brand.
We enjoyed this period that we were in #eastvillage 💕 This neighborhood became our home.
Tomorrow (Oct. 24) is the last day. The restaurant opened in the late summer of 2018, serving creative cuisine via Central Asia.
You can check out the Afandi Grill website for catering info.
