Luregate 2013

New, 5 comments

Owner John McDonald responds to the buzz surrounding the possible closure of his treasured Lure Fishbar with a very matter-of-fact evaluation of the local real estate scene: "All neighborhoods change with time. I still think it's one of the best areas, despite the fact that some local favorites have not survived. It's business—it's the market—in this case, we want the opportunity to pay market rent based on comps/deals. If we cannot match it, that is the way the market works. And while losing Lure would be a very undesirable outcome, we would have to accept it, having been given a fair shot." [Curbed NY]
