Mighty Bowl Closes After Less Than a Year

Mighty Bowl opened in November 2019 at 321 Amsterdam Avenue, between 75th and 76th Streets, and has already been forced to close this location.

A representative from the NYC chain serving Asian-inspired bowls told us it was a tough decision to close, but the pandemic forced them to. With almost 90% of restaurant owners unable to pay their rent in August, this is unfortunately not a surprise.

Mighty Bowl’s 2019 opening was eagerly anticipated after several delays, which are normal in the restaurant industry.

While closings don’t appear to be slowing down, year-round outdoor dining was recently approved, which will hopefully help many restaurant owners stay in business and even encourage new ones to open.

In addition, restaurants will soon be able to add a 10% surcharge to customers bills in order to further aid in their recovery, but this bill has received as much criticism as it has praise, with some arguing this surcharge will discourage people from dining out and from properly tipping their waitstaff.
