Au revoir, Alfanoose

Helen F | Mar 17, 2004 10:31 AM

Lifted in full from a colleague's e-mail:

"For those to whom this will be sad news (noose) indeed - Alfanoose, the middle eastern place on Fulton up near Broadway, is closing in nine days. The guy who owns the place said the LL raised his rent by 800%. (Yes, that is eight hundred percent.) At first he thought no one would pay that rent. But he was informed by the LL that Cingular will be opening up in his place. He does not know yet where he will be relocating. Stock up on your kibbe and zatar bread while you can."
