A favorite breakfast in the East Village is now on the shop menu.
The remarkable Odessa restaurant – one of the last 24-hour dinners in the neighborhood and a foothold for the crowd after the bars – has been on sale on Craigslist since closing last summer.
The Ukrainian restaurant, which also served a classic American greasy spoon on Avenue A and East Seventh Street, could be purchased for $ 400,000, according to an ad that said the restaurant was “turnkey.”
“The big dinner / restaurant has been a main neighborhood for 44 years,” it said. “Most of the business is a step with a significant opportunity for growth by creating a large export business. Great causal and fast food options for a densely populated area. “
But Odessa owners are now planning to retire instead of reviving the restaurant, broker Jason Pilku told Eater.
The restaurant was put up for sale two weeks ago – and potential buyers are already biting, Pilku said.
Dinner opened like a shot at a nearby bar in Odessa, delivering pies and Kielbas to children from nightclubs and other night owls for decades.
