With the way things have been shutting down in the past year, attention should be paid to those notable New York eateries that have since closed their doors.
This Soho Italian restaurant closed it doors on January 14th. Leaving the location to run as a full service events space. Chef Fabio Trabocchi did not stay on for that project.
Over in Tribeca, Ago closed its doors on May 5th. It had only been 119 days since the announcement that they would be closing when the restaurant shut down. The end came at the culmination of the Tribeca Film Festival.
And on the Upper East Side, the famed patisserie and bistro closed its doors on June 29. Due to a money-hungry landlord the shop was closed a month earlier than anticipated.
Although not quite closing in 2009 Craftsteak will close its doors on January 1, 2010. Not to worry, reports suggest that Tom Colicchio will be opening a new restaurant in the same location called Colicchio and Sons.
Here is hoping 2010 turns out better.
