Oko Frozen Yogurt, which closed down back in November at 152 Fifth Avenue (between Degraw and Douglass), will be replaced by a new restaurant called Chez Bibis Burger Bar. Temporary signage went up on Saturday, when I had a chance to briefly chat with the excited new owners about their plans for the space.
"We'll have great burgers, sandwiches, salads, and wraps, and everything will be very inexpensive," said one owner, who has a background in catering. "You'll come in with some friends, grab a burger and a beer, and be on your merry way."
They also plan to showcase the work of local artists (and will soon be calling for submissions), and hope to be open by April.
