Yesterday we speculated that Good World didnt have long for this world, and sadly it turns out to be true. But there are a couple of pieces of hope: Good World wont close until fall, and owner Annika Sundvick is looking for a new location. Plus, shes got another Swedish spot that will soon open its doors.
Yes its true, they are tearing down the building to, believe it or not, build another condo We will be staying until next fall, and possibly another year or less after that.
We have been looking for alternative spaces, and will at some point relocate it is doubtful well find something suitable for Good World in Chinatown, but we havent ruled the neighborhood out just yet.
We also are working on a new place not too far away, Allen and Delancey, which will be named White Slab Palace, and while Swedish at heart it will be somewhat different to Good World, hopefully well open sooner rather than later. Weve already been in construction for awhile. The new place is a separate project to Good World and is not meant as a replacement.
Indeed nothing can replace Good World. As one aficionado of their burger lamented to us, its closing will be the end of an era.
