Memphis Seoul coming to 1st Avenue

Ownership of Memphis Seoul has signed a lease to open its first Manhattan outpost at 123 First Ave. between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place. News of the deal was first reported by the @TradedNY account. 

This will be the second location for the restaurant, which describes itself as "Southern cookin' with a Korean kick!" (You can check out the menu here.) 

Founder Bart Hubbuch opened his first Memphis Seoul in Crown Heights. 

In case his name sounds familiar... Per Grub Street: "Originally from Dallas, Hubbuch was a career sportswriter who’d spent 27 years in the business before getting fired from the New York Post for a tweet about Donald Trump winning the 2016 presidential election." 

Grub Street also states that "Hubbuch had always been a home cook... and had long been interested in running his own business." 

A Memphis Seoul Instagram post lists a 2023 opening. 

This address became available after Organic Grill relocated to West Third Street this past spring.

Good luck. Every trump hater (besides that Amazon guy...) is our friend.

If he was fired by the NY Post then I will be a regular at this place when it opens.

When Trump goes to jail he can order delivery from this place

It looks like he got fired for comparing Trumps presidential win to Pearl Harbor and the sep 11th attacks.
