When Oko Frozen Yogurt, which was located on Fifth Avenue between Douglass and Degraw Streets, closed down in November of last year, there was much speculation about what would become of this prime North Slope storefront. Then a new restaurant called Chez Bibis Burger Bar began to take shape there in February, and many lamented the fact that there were already more than enough burger places in the area (especially once Burger Bistro announced less than a week later that it would be opening across the street). Those plans fell through though, most likely after some standard due dilligence, and the space has sat empty since.
Well, it looks like the next tenant to take over the storefront will be abother type of business that there's no shortage of around here: a hair and nail salon. Many thanks to a tipster for sending in the photo, which shows their signage being installed yesterday. Looks like it'll be called Silky.
