Personally I only stopped in because it was convenient on my walk home from the subway, will be interesting to see how it does south of EP.
833 Franklin, 900 sq ft, 4k a month.
On Franklin near Union
We jabbered about this property previously on this thread:http://www.brooklynian.com/forums/topic/mj-restaurant
From their Facebook feed:
The news is out...Owl & Thistle will be moving 4 blocks away to 833 Franklin to a bigger and better space! Opening won't be until January 2014 and we'll be at our current location (720 Franklin btwn Park & Sterling) until after the New Year!
They're not moving because it is bigger and better. they're moving because the landlord doubled the rent.
Would (can) someone please remind me what they sell?
And, when you think about it, they probably first opened on Franklin Avenue because they could not afford the rent in a higher priced area, like Park Slope.
In my mind, the real question is "Is the area around their destination CURRENTLY as able and interested in buying their products as those 720 Franklin were and have been?"
yuppie scum--The seem to sell gift items. Housewarming gifts, specifically.
From the article: "Brokers say part of the uptick in rent is attributed to the new branding of the northern strip.
"They're calling it Prospect Heights even though it's technically all Crown Heights," said Kristina Triglia, the CPEX Real Estate broker"
Now that's annoying.
Owl and Thistle is closing
