News that Uncle Louie G's was taking over the former Area Store at 233 Smith Street travelled fast in the blogosphere and the community seems generally excited by the prospect of a new ice-cream parlor on Restaurant Row.
But the owners Louie G's have hit a snag in their business plan: they forgot to file the proper permit with the NYC Buildings Department to do the necessary plumbing and electric work.

Oooops! Seems someone ratted them out. Yesterday, as I walked by, the Building's
Department had taped a notice of violation on the store's window.
I guess the grand opening may be delayed for a bit.

Funny that they claim to be "the best ice cream" in America. They used to be on Henry st. Are they still on Union st near 5th ave? They also have a store in Red Hook. They should wait until Spring to open anyway. It will be nice to have the ices around. It just too bad peeps try and drift under the permits like Diego and other business. Do it right and enjoy the profits!

Nope, no snag at all. Looks like they worked it all out ;)

They are open - and right on time too as the weather is breaking!

Just had a rainbow ice there on Sunday. Love their ices!
