Thai foodies have less than a month to get one last meal at one of the city's most popular restaurants for the cuisine.
After more than six years Pok Pok in Brooklyn, will shutter its doors September 2nd, according to head chef Andy Ricker.
Ricker says financial pressures, such as rising rent and a squeeze on profits, played a large role in the decision to close the beloved restaurant.
Loyal Pok Pok patrons told us they will be sad to see the Thai staple go.
"It's definitely a sad time for the neighborhood and for the culinary scene in Brooklyn and New York all together," said one customer.
Ricker will open another Pok Pok location in Las Vegas, but the 54-year-old chef says he's looking forward to spending more time at his home in Thailand and leading a less-hectic lifestyle.
