• Historic full-building restaurant opportunity
• Previously owned by Andy Warhol and art studio/home of Jean-Michel Basquiat
• Fully equipped restaurant space with venting & gas in place

• The lower level consists of 2 walk-in boxes, dry storage and office space
• The second floor consists of open loft space with high ceilings and multiple skylights
• All uses considered
The back of the ground-floor space had been home to Bohemian, an invite-only Japanese restaurant that provided some intrigue for food writers 10-plus years back. (As we understand, Bohemian's parent company, Play Earth Inc., owns the building.)
In July 2016, Village Preservation, in partnership with Two Boots Pizza, unveiled a commemorative plaque to mark Basquiat's time here from 1983-1988.
workers painted over all the tributes... though, as the top photo on this post shows, the tags are making a comeback.
You can read this post at Village Preservation for more history of the building, which once served as the HQ for Five Points Gang ringleader Paul Kelly.
