The other day, I stopped by the L.E.S. Sandwicherie [link] on Broome Street for a quick bite, but alas, the gates were drawn. Then just a few days later, painters were touching up inside. And neither of them had any conclusive information.

According to the official website, however, the eatery closed its doors on Wednesday, October 8. Apparently, the space wasn’t large enough.

Dear Friends, We would like to THANK YOU all for your dedicated patronage of our establishment for the last two years. We apologize for the short notice, but we have decided to close our doors on Wednesday, October 8th, at the 250 Broome Street location. We realized that the shop was a little too small, making it difficult for us to grow. Therefore, we decided to expand and move the shop to a more upbeat and larger space. We will notify you as soon as the new location opens. In the meantime, we will be serving your favorite sandwiches, wraps and salads at our sister restaurant, KUTA, only three short blocks away. Although we will not be serving the original menu, we will have most of the signature items and notable favorites available for you. KUTA will also be featuring its own specialty sandwiches and does offer more space with seating for up to 44 people. The menu will be available for lunch, between 11 AM and 5 PM; KUTA serves dinner from 5 PM onward. Delivery, take-out or dining in will be available October 20th. We hope you understand and give us your continued support.
