I walked by this joint one morning, as I did every morning, only to find it closed and gutted. And little did I know that it was purchased by the very company for which I work in order to expand its video production facility. I can’t imagine they’ll be able to fit much more than one editing bay in the space, but then again I’m but a mere cog in the machine, and not its captain. Shame, really, as many of my co-workers had come to rely upon Shuvam’s bagels and rice and bean lunches. I myself was shocked at the tastiness of the one chicken and rice lunch I had there, although the deserted dustiness of the empty space isn’t really much of a downgrade from its previous incarnation. Sorry, dudes–smell ya later. [MF]
