Jekyll & Hyde Closes, Will Take Monstery Self to Times Square
It's been quite a day for restaurant deaths: First came news of Elaine's closure, then Ray's Candy Store's DOH shutter, and now it seems that Jekyll & Hyde, that bizarro multi-story tourist sinkhole on Sixth Avenue and 57th Street, is leaving the premises.
According to The Real Deal, Jekyll & Hyde's building is being sold. The restaurant, which served margarita chicken quesadillas and had actors dressed as monsters, will open at another location in Times Square. Given that Times Square seems a natural receptacle for Jekyll & Hyde's oversize ghoul decorations, this isn't a surprise. What is surprising -- to us, anyway -- is that Jekyll & Hyde is a restaurant: For all of these years, we thought it was one of those fundamentalist Christian hell houses.
