Miracle on Smith St.: From Collapse to New in Less Than a Year

January 14th, 2009 · 2 Comments

This is the relatively new Kiku Sushi Asian Fusion lounge place that has opened at 170 Smith Street. We have no clue what it’s like as a restaurant, nor is that why we’re writing about it. What’s interesting is that the building was in such wretched shape that it started to collapse (well some parts of it fell off) on March 21, 2007 (the photo below was taking on March 20). Curbed captured the action. And, now, here it is, entirely renovated with a new building on the ground floor. By Broolyn standards, that was fast.

    FYI, as far as I can tell that restaurant hasn’t actually opened yet.
