Armando’s owner Peter Byros told GO Brooklyn, “I am retiring,” and said that a Midwestern chain restaurant would be going into the space, although he declined to name the chain. Neighborhood preservationists, along with state Senate candidate Daniel Squadron, are currently campaigning to save the neon “lobster sign” that hangs over the door.
Hmmm… Midwestern chain? Hmmm, Pizzeria Uno? What's your guess.
(Oh and for the record, would it have killed B'Paper to mention BHB being the "neighborhood preservationists" in question?)
