Three Months After Its Press Preview, El Colmado Still Isn't Open

The space, which was nearly done, is under construction again.

In November, El Colmado Butchery, the casual eatery and provisions shop from Tertulia's Seamus Mullen, hosted a press preview. At the time, the space appeared almost ready — all that seemed to be missing were the actual provisions and cuts of meats. Three months (and one London restaurant opening) later, Mullen's Meatpacking space is under construction again. The team is keeping its lips sealed as to why, saying "It's the usual pre-opening delays but I expect we'll be able to make an announcement very soon!"

It's not quite clear why the team is reworking the space, but it looks like there's a new counter top and floors, and the large communal table has been moved out. Perhaps something wasn't built to code or there was an electric or gas issue. We may never know, but the team promises an opening soon.
