And Famiglia is once again without a neighbor. A few days ago, Bwogger Mariela Quintana noticed that Empanada Joe’s had papered over their windows, but had left all of its furniture in place. At first, Bwog was unsure whether the store had departed or was merely remodeling.

However, tech-savvy Bwoggers noticed earlier today that the Morningside Heights location is no longer on the locations page, even though Google Cache shows it having been there in the past. It appears, then, that Empanada Joe’s has joined the growing list of culinary casualties in Morningside since the new semester began.

Judging from the comments on our review, though, there will be much rejoicing. And who knows – maybe its replacement will be something useful?
