Gawker's got the early word that today's immigration rally is darkening eateries across the city:
A lady who lunches informs us that Noho eateries Five Points and Noho Star are closed for lunch due to the immigration strike — anyone know of any other venues suffering because of headstrong laborers? We called Five Points to confirm and received the following explanation: “You know, because most of the kitchen staff…” [Voice awkwardly trails off.] Oh yes, we know. [Eyes roll, disapproving shake of head.]Gawker readers add Florent and Pump to the list. Others?
UPDATE: A tipster reports that Laurent Tourondel's BLT Steak is closed for lunch, while BLT Fish is operating, but with a condensed menu. Keep 'em coming.
