Smorgasburg Has Bailed on Soho

Talk about fast food: Smorg Square won’t be returning to the lot at Canal and Varick, reports Eater: “The costs and time to bring in the supplies needed became too high. The Department of Health would only allow it to be a three-day site without power, water, and sewer brought in, but Smorgasburg couldn’t secure those things in a costly and timely manner, according to [co-founder Eric] Demby. So after a year of trying, the group decided to just pull out.”

This would seem to be the nail in the coffin for Brooklyn Flea’s outpost at 100 Sixth Ave., which already had an iffy future. (Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea are part of the same company.)
