91 jobs lost thanks to Occupy Wall Street.
Milk Street Cafe, the restaurant whose business dried up in the face of the Occupy Wall Street barricades, is shutting down.
Thursday will be the last day for the 23,000 square-foot eatery that opened at 40 Wall St. in June, the Daily News has learned.
Epstein blamed the barricades that remained in front of his restaurant even after the Occupy Wall Street protestors were removed from Zuccotti Park.
“This is now the 12th straight week of the barricades,” he said.
The restaurant owner, who operates an eatery and catering business in Boston, said he pressed the city daily for their removal, but got nowhere.
Milk Street Cafe’s closure will result in the layoff of 70 workers. That’s on top of the 21 let go in October.
When asked whether he would ever open a restaurant in New York again, Epstein responded, “Never.”
