I recently read that Guastavino's was closing, and then while walking down Second Avenue I noticed there was a trend. Within the past few weeks, 4 places have closed on 2nd Ave between 54th St & 51st.
Haikara (kosher sushi)
Fresco Tortilla (fast food mexican)
Ok, these may not be great places, but this area is becoming a restaurant wasteland.
Isn't there one good chef that dares to venture into this area? This area is so neglected, the chef would almost be cutting edge.
