In 2009, the father passed away, but the son carried on. When the store closed this spring, it was rumored that the business was only closed to the public but would continue supplying neighborhood eateries. That does not seem to be the case.
In the last month, the inside of the space has been completely gutted and a public notice has been taped to the gate, indicating that Jim and Andy, Inc. is applying for a full liquor license for this location.
(The applicant is going to appear in front of Community Board 6 on June 3rd.)
No word yet if the son is behind this new venture or if a new owner just kept the name to pay homage. Hopefully that means that the old sign will stay.
Does anyone have more info?
