According to the fall previews, Michael 'Empire Builder' Huynh was planning on opening a new restaurant at 6 Clinton Street called B Clinton. Not anymore. An email from Jerome Chang of the now defunct—but fondly remembered—Dessert Truck reveals that he and his partners are taking over the space, finally finding a brick and mortar home two months after the city unceremoniously closed down their popular mobile dessert operation:
We would like to announce our upcoming move to 6 Clinton Street (LES) where we'll be opening up shop sometime within the next few months. We cannot give an opening date because the lease has just been signed.It will be interesting if they focus solely on dessert, given sweets spot Luxee just closed in the same spot back in August. And our condolences to Michael Huynh. Let's hope he can open his daily changing market menu concept somewhere else.
And no, the project will not be called "DessertTruck Stop." The name is TBD. This next DessertTruck project will remain true to our ideals of quality, affordability and accessibility. We will feature our DessertTruck menu along with plenty of new items. We'd also like to thank everyone for their enthusiastic support.
