Simply shutting its doors wasn't enough excitement for Fatty 'Cue's West Village outpost. The now-vacant eatery was seized by the city Marshal last week and returned to the building's owner, according to Eater. The department likely stepped in after the rent went unpaid.
The opening-closing-opening-closing dance of the Williamsburg outpost and the shutter of the Carmine Street location leaves just the Barclays outpost standing for the former 'Cue empire. The Crew's Fatty Crab on Hudson Street remains open, but co-founder Zak Pelaccio is no longer involved in the operation.
