The former JoeDough space is now for rent on 1st Avenue

The quick-serve JoeDough sandwich shop closed in February after two-plus years at 135 First Ave.

At the time, Fork in the Road reported that proprietors Joe and Jill Dobias were keeping the space between St. Mark's Place and East Ninth Street "to focus on catering under the moniker JoeDough Catering & Events."

Now, though, there is a new for rent sign up in the front window.

Here are the details via Halstead:

Ground Floor Retail: 300sf + 200sf basement
Sublease: 3 years + 5 year option
Rent: $4,900 per month
Description: Turn Key Takeout restaurant. Fully vented to roof
Key money: Upon request

Compare this to 149 First Ave. up the block ... where the former This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef space is asking $9,500 a month for 500 square feet on the ground floor (and another 500 square feet in the basement).

JoeDough has closed on First Avenue

After two-plus years at 135 First Ave., the quick-serve JoeDough sandwich shop has called it a day, as Fork in the Road first reported yesterday.

However, proprietors Joe and Jill Dobias are keeping the space, which closed for business after service on Sunday … to use to help expand their catering operation…

In addition, they are keeping several of the popular JoeDough sandwiches on the menu over at Joe & Misses Doe on East First Street. It doesn't appear that the meatball sandwich is one of them that made the cut, though.

Everyone loves a really bad meatball sandwich!

EV Grieve reader MP sent this along from outside JoeDough today on First Avenue near St. Mark's ...


And here's the Yelp review from February...

Probably the worst meatball sandwich (special of the day) I have had in the tri-state area in my 32 years of living here, especially for $12. In all fairness I have not had the other sandwiches but with prices like that coupled with underwhelming food and slow service this will be a skip in the future. Joe Hell No!

The sandwiches of JoeDough, opening tomorrow

The husband-and-wife team behind JoeDoe on East First Street are opening their gourmet sandwich shop at 135 First Avenue tomorrow, according to write ups today at Thrillist and Daily Candy.

Among their sandwiches:

The After-School Special: White bread topped with mustard, fried bologna and chips
The Conflicted Jew: Chicken liver and onions with bacon on challah bread.

Daily Candy notes that they will sell eight sandwiches and one daily special ... each sandwich goes for $10. They will also be making six-foot party subs.

How goes JoeDough?

As Grub Street reported last month, the husband-and-wife team behind JoeDoe on East First Street are opening a gourmet sandwich shop at 135 First Avenue called — haha — JoeDough.

Anyway, kind of forgot about that... until we walked by last night and saw the progress at the space near St. Mark's Place ...

JoeDoe opening JoeDough on First Avenue

In November 2009, Habib's Place on Avenue A near Sixth Street closed rather suddenly... Then came the news that Habib relocated to the former Question Mark Cafe space at 135 First Avenue between St. Mark's and Ninth Street. And that venture seemed to close just as suddenly and quietly.

Anyway, Grub Street reports that the husband-and-wife team behind JoeDoe on East First Street are opening a gourmet sandwich shop at 135 First Avenue called — seriously — JoeDough. It will open sometime this fall, per Grub Street.

Personally, I wouldn't mind having another normal, nongourmet sandwich place like Sunny & Annie's on Avenue B at Sixth Street.

And does anyone know what happened to Habib?
