Sorry, Times Square tourists: Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill + Bar might not be a dinner option for much longer. The chain restaurant’s Manhattan location on 42nd Street was given an eviction notice after missing quite a few rent payments.
The location’s franchisee, Apple-Metro, reportedly owes $7 million in back rent for the 11,000-square-foot space, according to an Oct. 17 article from Crain’s New York. The amount includes unpaid rent and other expenses dating back to June 2019. The location was served an eviction notice last week, issued by a state Supreme Court judge.
