CLOSED? - Brisas del Caribe on Bway & Broome...

2slices Jan 3, 2007 04:06 PM

Went by a few weeks ago. They looked closed or under reno's. No sign on door but things looked torn up inside. I had talked to the owner over the summer and he said they weren't going anywhere and when i told him i loved the old counter he said they weren't planning on changing a thing.

Any scoops? I love this place. Really hope it's not closed.

    I thought Brisas closed years and years ago. In any case, there's a Dominican place at 236 Lafayette just north of Spring, La Conquita, which I'm told is excellent. I passed by yesterday and though I didn't have a chance to look in, it appears from the outside that they've spruced up the interior and maybe expanded a bit.

      Unfortunately, it's been closed for many months. It looks like they are putting in something else, but it's not clear if it's food related or not.

        I am heartbroken that Brisas del Caribe closed. Does anyone know if they are opening somewhere else? I have no good chicken place anymore!
