The hamburger joint, which opened in May 2011, never really took off, partly because of it's prices, partly because of it's uninviting interior. It also faced stiff competition from Five Guys and Moo Burger just a few blocks further on Court Street in Cobble Hill. Or perhaps it was just the name.
In December 2011, Vinzee's owner posted a sign in the window announcing the eatery's new "Winter hours." Basically, the place was only open from Thursdays to Sundays from then on.
By then, it was just a matter of time before it's final demise.
In the last few day, I got two emails from readers telling me that the place is now closed all the time.
"Vinzee's Magic Fountain totally kaput? It looks like they've been closed the past few days. After they reduced their hours a few months ago, it wasn't looking promising."
And Dineocrat comments:
"I live by Vinzies and saw that they weren't even open for their winter hours this week. They were closed all weekend. Just wanted to let you know. I wonder what would do well in the space."
Good question! What would do well here?
