Km1 returns to 58 E. 1st St.

Km1 had its grand reopening back on Friday here at 58 E. First St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

The restaurant, short for Kilometro Uno, and serving food from the Caribbean, opened in the summer of 2020... but went dark late last year without any notice to patrons. 

Then in March, VistroBurger and PurpleThai arrived in the space. 

Not sure what all happened in the whirlwind — VistroBurger and PurpleThai relocated to Third Avenue in Gramercy Park — but Km1 is back. They are open daily from 5-11 p.m.

This address has seen several quality restaurants come and go in recent years. Esperanto Fonda lasted nine months here, closing in May 2017. Before that, this was home to BARA for two years and Prima for three years. The Elephant, a Thai restaurant, was previously here for 17 years.
