EaterWire AM Edition: Le Souk's Liquor License Suspended, Xing Closing

EAST VILLAGELe Souk, long an absolute menace to the East Village and a lounge that cannot possibly be shut down soon enough, has had its liquor license suspended for 10 days by the State Liquor Authority. From the Post: "The Avenue B club has a litany of complaints against it dating back to 2003 for a "disorderly premises," being the "focal point for police attention," exceeding occupancy and keeping illegal hours. It was also cited for building-code violations and fire-safety issues." The suspension was part of a move by the SLA that either suspended, revoked or canceled 34 licenses (full list here). Also affected is The Carriage House on 59th Street, which faces a 20-day suspension. [NYP; EaterWire]

HELL'S KITCHENXing, the Hell's Kitchen Chinese restaurant recently nominated for a Beard award for outstanding design is closing after a two-year, very shaky run. Chowhound has the story incidentally; we're awaiting further comment from Xing GM Edgar Balagot. [Chowhound]
