It’s unusual to have a restaurant space in a busy neighborhood remain empty for five years, but that’s exactly what happened with the Kitchen Table space. The split-level restaurant closed in 2013, and the former owners are ready for fresh ones to assume the space.

The Kitchen Table lasted eight months, in what was already a rapidly changing neighborhood. The vacant space has an 1,100 square foot first floor, and a 1,000 square foot rooftop patio. The restaurant initially closed because of a building and safety request for a rooftop awning. Staff started to flee, then the owner experienced some medical issues, before closing the doors permanently.

Now that the restaurant has been sitting vacant for five years, the Kitchen Table owners are now looking to assign a five-year lease. They also want to sell the furniture, fixtures, equipment, as well as the full liquor license for $280,000. It’s pretty surprising that a space like this could be only $3,900 a month in Downtown, especially with neighboring businesses like Kazu Nori, Ledlow, The Lash, and Baco Mercat. Anyone interested can connect with the leasing company.
