Sheepshead Bay Road-staple Anatolian Gyro has moved off the main thoroughfare to a brand new storefront around the corner, and is now serving its yummy Turkish treats at the new location.
We announced the move was forthcoming back in October, with a planned opening date in January. As usual, permit holdups and inspector delays pushed that date back. But the new location opened its doors in the last weekend of April.
Now at 2623 East 16th Street, the new storefront is slightly larger. A peek inside revealed an industrial looking design with a Mediterranean touch. It looks comfortable and modern, and a definite upgrade from their old digs.
As we reported in October, the move comes as the landlord, Waldorf Realty, prepares to renovate the strip of storefronts that included Enterprize Gifts, Zeetron and Eye Appeal. Enterprize moved across the street in March, while Eye Appeal moved near the subway station in August 2013. Zeetron never reopened after Superstorm Sandy.
Waldorf recently started prepping another Sheepshead Bay Road property at Voorhies Avenue, containing six ground-floor businesses, for a face-lift. They’re also nearing completion on a renovation of another batch of storefronts on the corner of Avenue Z and East 16th Street.
