A for rent sign arrived at the recently shuttered Bait & Hook on the northwest corner of 14th Street and Second Avenue several weeks ago.
Now, as EVG regular Pinch notes, there's a new sign on the space: "Opening soon under new management."
Bait & Hook debuted with promises of a New England-style seafood restaurant in September 2012. In the opening announcement, Executive Chef Joe Bachman said: "We wanted to open a place that offered New Yorkers an affordable, casual dining experience, with the feel of a seafood shack but the taste of an ocean-side eatery."
The space eventually became another sports bar and SantaCon stop.
We'll see what version of Bait & Hook the new management decides to go with...
