A bad sign at 99 Favor Taste


[Photo from Aug. 22]

Earlier this month, a "14-day notice demanding payment of rent" notice arrived on the front door of the currently closed 99 Favor Taste at 37 St. Mark's Place ...



According to the paperwork, the restaurant at Second Avenue owes $34,986 (!!!) for the August rent along with a balance of the July rent and real-estate tax for a sum totaling more than $52,000.

Last week, the ongoing sidewalk construction moved to the front door of the restaurant, blocking entry to the space...



The restaurant, which offers traditional Korean-style barbecue and Chinese hot pot meals at multiple NYC locations (and free birthday meals), opened in the East Village in July 2017. Several of the other 99 Favor Taste outposts are open.

Restaurants on St Marks can afford 35k rent?

Where does it say it was closing? So they owe a month plus of rent, and landlord sent a demand. So what?

Last time I checked, only the Brooklyn location was open, none of thd Manhattan ones. Not easy to serve all you can eat in an outdoor setting on St Marx or LES streets.

This is further proof (as if we needed any) of the determination of this city to drive businesses OUT of business.

Landlords do not care about New York they'd rather kill the golden goose than feed it
