Is Christmas Finally Over at Royal Bangladesh Indian Restaurant?


Royal Bangladesh Indian Restaurant will be closed until March 4, according to a sign posted on its shutter.

When The Local stopped by earlier today, the ground-floor space was stripped of its trademark Christmas lights and there wasn’t a sidewalk barker in sight.

An electrician confirmed that the restaurant is undergoing renovations. Maybe so it can better compete with the light shows upstairs? Heck, maybe it has finally caught on to the filament bulb trend…
