Gas leak sidelines Hub Thai on Avenue A [Updated: Back open!]

Updated 5 p.m. Good news! Multiple readers report that Hub Thai is back in action!

Bad news for Hub Thai. The restaurant at 50 Avenue A between Third Street and Fourth Street has been closed since last Wednesday. (Thanks to the reader who shared this tip!

There's a Con Ed notice on the storefront about a gas leak in the retail space. As such, the gas supply has been shut off for now.
As we've seen (here and here, for example), Con Ed-related gas issues can drag on. Hopefully, there can be a quick resolution here. 

Hub Thai just moved to the space from 105 Avenue A between Sixth Street and Seventh Street in early March.

Poor Hub Thai just moved there! Hopefully they're back in action soon.

This is a bad break. But Con Ed does move faster to restore gas to businesses. I don't know if it is because they are businesses or maybe they get more press. But the gas was out in our tenement building for over six months last year and Con Ed was in no rush to restore service.

I pray that they return and also slightly dim the lights in the evenings as it feels like 7-11 lights
