Two Toms

The Gowanus building that houses the excellent Two Toms Restaurant is up for sale.

A tipster on Twitter alerted me to the Trulia listing. It offers the building for $3 million and exclaims, "LOCATION EQUALS OPPORTUNITY! Searching for the perfect investment property found in one of the hottest neighborhoods in Brooklyn?"

Also, as ominously noted, "Currently the space is occupied by Two Toms Restaurant, but this space may also be delivered vacant, if necessary."

Two Toms has been in business since 1948 when it was opened by Tom Giordano and another Tom. It's been family-run since and is one of the last authentic red-sauce joints in a city where red-sauce joints are vanishing.

Enjoy the wood paneling and definitely get the pork chop. Before some asshole comes along and fucks it up.

Aw, CRAP! I've been wanting to get there ever since I walked past when we were in that neck of the woods :-(

it's really fucking disgusting to realize that there are horrible, shameless people out there who just consider what they do for a living as real estate people to be an honest, shame-free thing.
