Calling All Chefs


The Shoe Bar is going away and the realtor's ad does something that for some reason, most realtors forbid. It asks for restaurants.

CORNER OF 72 AND AUSTIN
IDEAL RESTURANT, RETAIL LOCATION


What the broker lacks in spelling skills, he makes up for in location. It really is a great one and with nearby Bonfire and 5 Burros doing great business, it could make for a nice little Restaurant Row East.

Scanning these real estate ads, I find "No Food!!!" 90% of the time . There just aren't that many landlords looking for restaurants (which could explain Metropolitan's surge in them), so I like to feature the ones that do. FoHi's restaurant scene needs all the help it can get.

So all aspiring or existing chefs - check out 71-63 Austin St. It's small, but well positioned. Danny Brown's ToGo?
