Dojo’s Restaurant — Previously on “Death Watch” — To Remain? | Now Closed and Under Construction

Dojo’s Restaurant — Previously on “Death Watch” — To Remain? | Now Closed and Under Construction

It’s typically not a good sign when a restaurant goes under renovations. And Greenwich Village mainstay, Dojo Restaurant, was previously on ‘Death Watch,’ but signs posted on the West 4th Street space earlier today make the situation sound promising.

The location is now under construction and signs on the windows state:

“Dear Dojo Customers:

We will be closed temporarily from August 5th, 2013 till September 2013 due to renovations. WE WILL REOPEN so please stay tuned!! We apologize about the inconvenience. We look forward to seeing you then!!!

Dojo Restaurant.

Let’s hope when September rolls around that Dojo’s is still there. (I tried calling later in the day but no answer so right now hoping for the best…)



Department of Buildings Work Permit says: Alteration Type 2 – Gen. Constr. Interior Non-structural demolition in cellar of existing restaurant. No change to use, occupancy, or means of egress.
