Hyde Park Gyros, 1368 E. 53rd St., has closed permanently. The restaurant’s lease expired, and Mac Properties spokesman Peter Cassel is remaining mum regarding the tenant that will replace it.
Cassel claimed the owner of the store, and not Mac, was responsible for the failure to renew the lease.
A sign reading “under construction”hangs on the former Hyde Park eatery’s door as preparations are made for the next tenant.
“We have a new tenant (lease signed) who we are very excited about,” Cassel said in an e-mail to the Herald. He said a public announcement would come soon.
