Tuesday, I reported on the unceremonious dismantling of the old Kiev Restaurant sign on Second Avenue—the last architectural remnant of the great old diner of loving memory. Some new renters of the space were busy taking it down.
On Thursday it was completely gone. No trace the sign or restaurant ever existed. Shed a tear, friends. The new eatery is to be called "Song." It was serve "Asian cuisine." (Gee. Every kind? Mongolian?) I snapped a shot of the interior—none too inspiring. I guess they deserve a chance at success like anybody else. Sorry, but the lack of respect they showed the Kiev sign just hit me the wrong way.
