Above, the location of new Louie G's ice cream parlor at 233 Smith Street
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.
