After getting shuttered by the DOB in June, well loved First Ave. Filipino joint Elvie's Turo-Turo went dark this month with a prominent "Seized" notice on the door. Now, that signage has been replaced with "For Lease" sign. Reports our tipster:
Saw a distraught Elvie on the corner this morning where I took it upon myself to tell her how saddened I was to have my favorite neighborhood resto closed. She was touched and proceeded to open up to me about how she moved back to the Philippines to retire and bequeathed the business to her daughter. To which she immediately ran into the ground in a span of 6 months.Ouch. First Cookout Grill and then this?
