In early June, we noted that Akina Sushi had been dark in recent weeks at 424 E. 14th St. between Avenue A and First Avenue.
The restaurant had a lot of fans, some of whom were hopeful for a return here.
Unfortunately, a 14-day rent demand was recently taped to the vacant storefront... noting that a total sum of $149,337.80 for rent, late fees "and other permissible charges" is due on or before July 22... at which time the landlord will "commence summary proceedings" to recover the space.
Akina Sushi opened here in December 2008.
