Rocky's owner responds on Eater: "I would like to clarify that we will be forced to shut our doors not for economic reasons ...it is my understanding that in regards to the increase in rent they will be paying what we agreed to pay or that there were tons of other offers or who would want immediate access or not as the owner of Balboosta has stated. It has everything to do with them...It was for one reason and only one because she decided that she wanted the space..plain and simple. We were on numerous occasions led to believe that the lease would be extended to us. The end result was we were not considered because of personal issues with the landlord and his relationship with the owners of Balboosta. You should respect your neighbors and the businesses they have built. Some people are business first and despite her protestations, Einat's actions show her true intentions."
