The former Lions & Tigers & Squares space is for rent on 2nd Avenue
As noted last week, the East Village outpost of Lions & Tigers & Squares had apparently closed. Workers were spotted cleaning out the pizzeria, including scraping the restaurant's name off the front windows here on Second Avenue at 10th Street.
The signage, which some commenters thought looked fitting for a car wash, was removed... and a for-rent sign arrived late last week...
Also arriving on the front door: Legal documents from the landlord, stating that rent from April through July — at $16k per month — is past due...
The Detroit-style pizzeria from the Artichoke team debuted in this high-profile corner space back in October.
The first Lions & Tigers & Squares remains open on 23rd Street in Chelsea.
