To Kasadela friends and family, It hurts us deeply to announce our official closure from 647 E. 11th street( n ave.C); As some of you already know we suffered greatly from Sandy and though we tried all that we could to re-open our current circumstance just won't allow that to happen, so reluctantly we've said goodbye to our beloved home on 11th st. The forces that lead to this decision making were many, but ultimately it was the LACK of support from our Landlord and building management- rather then write a scathing rant it's better to focus on the hopes for the future. As far as relocation is concerned we're currently fundraising to make that happen; the economic injury we've sustained prompted a dear friend to launch a donation account for Kasadela on GoFundMe and we've applied for a small business loan offered as Sandy relief. We haven't received any coverage from insurance and the costs of renovating far exceed what we've earned. The process of re-opening will take some time and great effort, so please keep us in your thoughts and we greatly appreciate all the support we have and will continue to receive. We would like to take time to thank everyone who donated to Kasadela via "gofundme" and the sake community for it's response: Nanbubijin Sake Brewery, Dassai Sake Brewery, Sakaya, Sake Discoveries, and more, thank you for your continued love and support of Kasadela Izakaya. Contributions can be submitted through "Save Kasadela" we will be using the donation money to close @ 647 e. 11th street and re-open in a new location, meanwhile don't forget about Kasadela, and don't forget about Tebasaki!!!! See you soon!!!!
