Korzo Haus, Home of the Deep Fried Burger, Locks Up Its Wooden Fortress in the East Village for Good

The team is looking for a new location somewhere downtown.


Quirky Slovenian restaurant Korzo Haus, known for its deep fried burgers (beloved by Robert Sietsema) has shut its doors along Tompkins Square park. The owners, according to EV Grieve, posted a note on the door that reads: "Thank You for years of your dedicated patronage. Our lease is up and this location is now closed. We are working on a new downtown Manhattan location. In the mean time we really hope you visit us at the original Korzo or Brooklyn Beet Company in Brooklyn." The exterior of the space looks more like a wooden fortress than most restaurants, so it will be interesting to see who wants to take on the challenge of redoing it.
