The midtown east location of the Benihana–owned sushi chainlet Haru will close in late August to accommodate large-scale renovations taking place within the building, reports Crain’s. The owners of 280 Park Avenue are renovating to recapitalize; it is unclear if Haru, which employs 77 people, will return to the building post-makeover. In the meantime, reps say they’re looking around for new digs. We know of a good spot that just hit the market! [Crain’s]
