The former Otto's Tacos space is for rent on 2nd Avenue

The for rent sign arrived last week at 141 Second Ave., officially bringing an end to Otto's Tacos here between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street. 

The tasty quick-serve tacqueria closed at the start of the PAUSE in March, and never reopened. (The other OT locations are also out of business.)

Otto Cedeno opened his first restaurant here in November 2013

There wasn't any closure announcement on the OT social media properties or website, which is now offline.

Meanwhile, the asking rent for No. 141 is available "upon request." A lot of things have come and gone here through the years, such as Good Guys, a Subway (sandwich shop), part of a Max Brenner outpost and Burritoville (sob).

This is so sad. I used to eat at this place almost daily. I stopped going as much a couple of years ago. They got a new beef supplier which wasn't as good so I switched to chicken and started going elsewhere when I craved carne asada. But I have fond memories of this place. A lot of taco joints are thriving right now because it's a grab and go food. I wonder what happened here.
