Souen is on the mend after late-September kitchen fire on 6th Street

Damage from a small kitchen fire on Sept. 26 has temporarily shuttered Souen, the longtime macrobiotic restaurant (and EVG favorite!) on Sixth Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

Ownership shared the top photo on Instagram yesterday, noting, "we're working hard to get our kitchen back in tip-top shape!" No word just yet on an opening date. Updates will be posted to Instagram.

There's also a GoFundMe campaign underway to help Souen with expenses.

Souen's original location, which dates to 1971, closed in early 2019 at 210 Sixth Ave., between Prince and King. The co-op board reportedly struck a deal for a new tenant with a higher rent.

Love that this place persists. Most people in the world today don't even know the word macrobiotic. Healthful cuisine before it became cool. OG.

I once saw actress/singer Zoë Kravitz (Lenny’s daughter) name this place as a favorite of hers in an interview
