NY Subway Will Be Closing After This Weekend - Building to Be Torn Down

Apologies. According to Eye Magazine the owner of this building has not applied for a building permit yet so building won't being going down, atlease right away. Avtar, the original owner of New York Subway and now owner of Ghandi Cuisine had told me that the building was being torn down and rebuilt. I've been in the back and upstairs in the building and it's in really bad shape, I couldn't imagine anything but tear down and start over. The actual owner of New York Subway now also own's Mother India in Parkdale. I haven't talked to her yet about her future plans. Dino the guy who is there 5 days a week 12 hours a day is not the owner. Dino said this Saturday is the last day.

Long before Burrito Boys, Chino Loco, and the like there was New York Subway. Fusion burritos some very simple liek the chicken satay, other with Indian influences. My favorite over the years has been the Eggplant (it is a taste experience like no other). Whether you like eggplant or not you will have trouble not loving this burrito. The place doesn't look like much but the food is incredible. Throughout the last 15 years of my life I have had the joy of bringing friend's there for the first first time and watch them fall in love with the food. Next too enjoying good food the best thing is sharing it with others as we do here on Chowhound. So that is why I share this with you today. Sadly the building is in quite disrepair and the owner of the building will tear start tearing it down next week. At this time it is unclear if they will reopen. I can only hope.
