We haven't heard anything just yet about the business. The classified ad for kitchen help states that Dan Fleming ("as seen on Chopped, Beat Bobby Flay, Dishmantled") is the culinary director. "This is a fast-growing company that is looking to expand. We welcome all candidates to be part of something new and revolutionary happening in the East Village."
The Laurels takes over for Bait & Hook, which went dark at the start of the year after nearly 11 years in service, and without any notice to patrons.
Before Bait & Hook, the space was the Meatball Factory, then Hole Foods ... and before that! The Pizza Hut-Nathan's-Arthur Treacher's combo, which vanished in 2010.
And the "egregious" violation-ridden outdoor dining ROOM is still intact & even cleaned up. So much for DOT enforcement.
Revolutionary, ah...? We'll see about that.
Report "outdoor dining" area to DOB; you may get quick action!
I believe long before the fast food combo the space was a greasy spoon diner called the Burger Ranch for many years in the 80's and maybe the early 90's.
And it was perfect in every way! I really miss that old diner. I think it had another name after Burger Ranch (which I actually don’t remember).
Not much wrong with their outdoor space...not on road.
