Kurve/Rhong Tiam Is Finally Moving on
It's officially the end of an era: The blighted Kurve/Rhong Tiam space on the corner of Second Avenue and East 5th Street is finally moving on. Per Grub Street, it's going to become a "craft-beer-focused bar-restaurant" from the team behind Dempsey's and Sláinte. When it opens in July, it will be serving 25 beers on tap and a mix of American comfort food and Irish fare. And although it pains us to say so, we're assuming the new owners won't keep the nihilistic graffiti.
